Attends L.V.C. 

Miss Masami Uchida, already a 
graduate of Yokohama Teachers' Col- 
lege and with two years' teaching ex- 
perience in Japan, will attend Lebanon 
Valley College on a four year scholar- 
ship arranged by the late college presi- 
dent, Dr. Clyde A. Lynch. She was 
recommended for the scholarship by 
Mrs. Behney, her sponsor in the coun- 
try, and by J. Earl Thomas (lieutenant- 
colonel, U. S. Army, retired) of Mt. 

The arrangement which brings her 
to America to study Christian educa- 
tion is an interdenominational affair. 
Miss Uchida is of Methodist faith; 
Mr. and Mrs. Behney are active in 
Palmyra's Evangelical and Reformed 
Church; and Dr. Lynch, who arranged 
for the scholarship, headed a United

With the Deepest Sorrow 


Whatever monuments may later be established to the memory of Dr. 
Lynch, the greatest will be the enduring effects of the work he did here. 
When a man has served his fellow man and community as did Dr. Lynch; 
has served to the best of his ability, served with sincerity and humility, 
then words of praise are indeed futile. The record speaks more eloquently 
than obituary or epitaph. 

We who knew his friendly smile on the campus, who listened to fath- 
erly advice across the desk in his office, will remember him as a man of 
small stature yet big heart; as a man who could perform with dignity the 
duties of his office and yet could perform those duties with a personal 
touch that convinced us of his sincerity; as a man who worked hard at 
the immediate' task, and yet always with the vision ever before him of the 
greater Lebanon Valley College to come. 

Physically he is no longer with us, but through the years to come we 
shall feel his loving spirit hovering over our classrooms, over our chapel 
services, over our hearts. 

Chapel Service 
Will Be Memorial 

A Memorial Service for the late 
President Clyde A. Lynch will be held 
in the regular chapel service, Tuesday, 
September 26. Reverend Gockley will 
preside over the service and the obit- 
uary for Dr. Lynch will be read by 
Dean Stoneecipher. The main address 
will be delivered by Mr. R. D. Mow- 
rey of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. 

Campus Women 
Feted At Tea 

A tea for the new women faculty 
members and wives of new faculty 
members of Lebanon Valley College 
was held at the home of Mrs. Frederic 
K. Miller, 763 E. Maple St., Annville. 
In attendance were Miss Anne Dunk- 
le, Mrs. W. Maynard Sparks. Mrs. 
John P. Scholz, Mrs. Charles Ablett, 
Mrs. O. P. Bollinger, Mrs. Warren 
Gockley, Mrs. Byron Lynn Harriman, 
Mrs. Ralph R. Ricker, and Mrs. 

In 1926 Lebanon Valley's Charles 
Gelbert intercepted a pass and ran 
80 yards to a touchdown and Paul 
Piersol place kicked a 40 yard field 
goal against Villanova.

Who's Who In the Conserv 

by Bob Rhein 


Bruce Wiser, our slim band major, is a native of Pontiac, Michigan, 
and was a member of the Michigan All-State Band from 1938-40. While 
a member of the High School Band at Pontiac, he won first place in the 
National Band Contest, region 3, in 1940. After this he served four years 
with the 324th Army Service Forces Band. He was married after his dis- 
charge and made his home in Hanover, Pennsylvania. He entered Gettys- 
burg College in 1946 as a Science Major and after one year transferred to 
Lebanon Valley where he is majoring in music. 

While a student on our campus, he has been very active in the Con-

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 21, I95Q 


Well, we'll have our second crack at the Chocolate Bowl on Saturday 
night and we figure there's no better way to start off this article than to 
say that we hope our football valiants will fare much better than last year's 
Valley gridders who took a pasting from Gettysburg in the annual classic. 
This year we feel that the Dutchmen will be more evenly matched with the 
opponent, Franklin & Marshall; and therefore we can expect to see a far 
better display of football. 

This is more than just an opening game for Lebanon Valley; it is 
their second chance to prove to the football loving citizenry of the Central 
Pennsylvania area, and to our alumni, students, coaches, and friends, the 
type of team they have. Last year we didn't prove a thing in the Choco- 
late Bowl, but when down in humiliation before the Battlefielders. Many 
people haven't forgotten that game and are apparently judging Lebanon 
Valley teams from that one contest. That is sad for us; however, come 
Saturday and plenty of football folk will jam the stadium once again think- 
ing that surely the Flying Dutchmen will present something more formid- 
able this time. We'd sure hate to see them disappointed. 

On the other hand, people will be witnessing this clash who have 
never seen the Valley play before, or very rarely. Therefore, Saturday night 
is the time to put on the show, the "piece de resistance." This is one of 
our biggest games in years with a gate of 14,000 persons expected; we'll 
just have to show them how Lebanon Valley plays football, the winning 
way. (We hope!) Remember, we will be judged according to our dem- 
onstration there on the field. Last year we had miserable attendances at 
our home clashes and in order to delete a repeat on this we'll have to prove 
something more than our wonderful band on Saturday night. People will 
gladly travel to see us play our games, but if F & M pulls a "Gettysburg" 
on us, well, maybe the football crowd from this area would prefer the 
road to Lancaster instead of Lebanon. 

After all, our alumni and students may be loyal, but as far as the 
average fan is concerned, the calibre of play is the deciding factor as to 
where he'll go to watch his football. So, Saturday night is our chance to 
make good. This is our second chance; we failed last year, but let's get 'em 
this time. A win in the Chocolate Bowl and a fine exhibition will instill an 
urge to witness more of our grid attempts this fall. Considering the fact 
that we play four home games this year, with two at night, the F & M 
game can be a drawing card for these tussles. Bring to mind that an early 
impression usually lasts, and the Chocolate Bowl is just that; let's show 
them we're worthy of the honor of being invited to play in it. 

Like Coach Ricker, we will refrain from commenting about the team 
at this time. It is true that we have mentioned the freshmen, but the editors 
of La Vie feel that it is better for psychological reasons that we say nothing 
about the other individuals on the squad. As far as the team in general 
is concerned, we all have probably learned one way or another how they 
stack up. The story about the freshman footballers was written to give them 
added confidence which we feel our other performers already have. 

Well, that's all. Now let's get out there on Saturday night and show 
those people that you're from Lebanon Valley. Be proud of it! Those guys 
on that football field are giving their best for you and your Alma Mater. 
Appreciate it, won't you? After all, it is your college.

Andy Kerr Writes a Letter 
Wishes Team Grid Success 

June 19, 1950 

Mr. Ji m Pacy 
Sports Editor 
La Vie Collegi enne 
bear Jim, 

Although I am no longer actively associated with Lebanon Val- 
ley in football, 1 will continue to maintain a keen interest in the 
college and its football progratn. 

I have worked with most of the members of the 1950 football 
squad. They are a fine group of young men. I have been very 
closely associated with them and have made enduring friendships. 
I am intensely interested in their success in football and in the 
greater game of life that follows. My hope is that the squad gives 
to Coach Dutch Ricker and his staff the same kind of fine effort 
and cooperation that they gave me. 

To the college, the football team, and to Dutch Ricker and 
his staff I extend my best wishes for a successful season. The 
Proper way to start the season is with a victory over F and M in 
'he Chocolate Bowl. Good Luck. 

Sincerely yours,

Diplomats Preparing For 
Gridiron "Negotiations" 

According to a national football magazine, Franklin & Marshall ex- 
pects to win the Chocolate Bowl game at Hershey on Saturday night. (Oh, 
yeah?) Anticipating this goal, Head Coach Woody Sponaugle has been 
drilling his team twice a day for a number of weeks and has also sent the 
Diplomats through four scrimmages with other schools. The Lancaster col- 
legians have met West Chester Teachers twice and have also scrimmaged 
Muhlenburg. Last week Sponaugle's charges took to the field against the 
very competent defensive unit of the University of Pennsylvania, and re- 
liable reports from the Lancaster camp have it that "the Dips looked very 
good along side of Penn." Sponaugle's backfield consisted of Bob Werst 
and Herb Galebach, quarterbacks; Wally Witmer, Irv Jiras, Johnny Tullai, 
Jack Lowder, and Red Lucas, half backs; Bobby High and Frank Mill- 
house, full backs, also Steve Mischissin, Bill Trimble and Bob Cordier. 
John Tullai was reported to have been a standout as was soph Wally Wit- 
mer from Hummelstown, who was hailed as Dauphin County's schoolboy 
"athlete of the year" in 1948. Werst's passing was summed up as "sharp." 

Sponaugle was highly pleased with the results of the session with Penn, 
which was carried on ; during a pouring rain. He remarked that the team 
looked one hundred percent improved in three days comparing their work- 
outs against the Mules and the Quakers. 

Although F & M has an overwhelming edge in wins over the Flying 
Dutchmen, the Dip coaches aren't taking Ralph Ricker or the Valleyites 
gently. Last season Ricker took his Dickinson squad to Lancaster and 
pulled a mild upset in holding the Sponauglemen to a tie. On the other 
hand, the Diplomats found it comparatively easy in battering the Flying 
Dutchmen 41-0 back in 1947. However, Sponaugle stated that he's looking 
for a tough fight and is expecting trouble in the opener. 

F & M will run out of the "T" formation with a dab of the winged-T 
for variety. Sponaugle is introducing a two-platoon system which the'F & M 
coaching staff is hoping pays off, since this is the first time that the Dips 
have had a large enough squad to attempt such a venture. They are some- 
what worried since the team has lost the services of three key players. Paul 
Giovangrossi, a tackle, was lost through illness; tackle Manny Getz, was 
dropped because of scholastic deficiency and George Shallcross, a first- 
string guard was called into the service. This sort of throws the wrench 
into some of Sponaugle's plans but he is making adjustments to offset these 

As for last year's record, the Dips won two, lost five, and tied two. 
In comparing the results of games played against the same opponents, the 
Dips bowed to Albright, 7-0, while Lebanon Valley ground out a 26-13 
win over the Red Lions. Western Maryland barely beat F & M 12-6, but 
ran LVC through the meat chopper 39-7. The only other common op- 
ponent faced was Gettysburg, and they made a dismal day of it for both 
schools, beating the Diplomats 39-14, and the locals 33-14. The Diplo- 
matic victories were racked up against mediocre aggregations from Swarth- 
more and Ursinus by 45-8 and 27-6 counts respectively. In other games 
Lehigh plastered the Lancaster countians 53-0 while Johns-Hopkins eeked 
out a 14-13 triumph. Carnegie Tech and Dickinson battled the Blue and 
White to stalemates.

Sixteen Frosh Trade Dinks 
For Helmets On Saturday 

Sixteen freshmen boys will be wearing the blue and white of Lebanon 
Valley when the Flying Dutchmen make their first appearance of the season 
against the football legions, of Franklin & Marshall under the arcs at Her- 
shey Stadium on Saturday night. That evening some of these yearlings will 
be given an opportunity to present the fruits of their labors, and we are 
quite certain that a few of them will embark right then and there upon a 
great grid future here at the Valley. A number of them have shown up 
well in the practice sessions and scrimmages, and it is hoped that as the 
season progresses these "greenies" will gain the necessary experience and 
poise that will lead them on to more polished collegiate performances. 

Going down the list of the frosh footballers, we start with Angie Bon- 
anni, one of the Philadelphians on the squad. Angi played his high school 
football at usually powerful Roman Catholic and joins the Valley aggregation 
as a center. He's one of those short, stocky guys, the type you might refer 
to as a "bag of muscles." We should be seeing him in action in the pivot 
slot on many an occasion. One of the most promising freshmen is Don 
DeBenedett, who calls Montclair, N. J., his home. DeBenedett may be one 
of the answers, although a diminutive one, to a great "Di" we lost through 
graduation, namely Hank DiJohnson. This lad has shown plenty of speed 
and drive, and his running ability and hard charging tactfulness that "Hank 
the Tank" was noted for. Don played high school football on one of New 
Jersey's perennial powerhouses, Montclair High, and we're hoping his grid 
success will be repeated here at LVC, since he is one of the fastest men we 
have. Bob Diamond is a two-purpose man on the team in that he might 
Play at defensive end or offensive guard. He's a Wyndmoor, Pa., boy tip- 
Ping the scales at 178. Another end is Tom Duke from Barnesboro, Pa. 
Duke is a big 6 ft. 1 incher and will be used on both offense and defense. 
Bill Gorgone of Bergen, N.J., has been out for the Valley eleven only a 
week and therefore there isn't much we can comment on about this fellow. 

Marty Grochowski is one of the big boys on the team and is attempting 
t0 Play the guard position. However, Red is as green as college linemen 
go and will need more of Coach Ricker's guidance. The next "pigskinner" 
]S Mel Hostetter who lives right here in Annville. Mel has proven himself 
capable of handling a fullback's job and may also be used as an offensive 
to tl? ° r defensive halfback. Ed Hutchko is another center and he comes 
° the Valley from the rough and tough football section up in the Wyoming 
164 m ° re definitel y' Plymouth, Pa. Ed is seventeen years old and is a 
Pounder. Sal LaBruzza is the dark-haired freshman back who has pre- 
nted his ability in such a manner that Coach Ricker figures he might be 
Possible starter at defensive halfback. LaBruzza is a North Jerseyite and 
tarred on the Nutley, N.J., High football combines. Sal is expected to 
d air y on his footballistics rather well here at LVC. Abe Leaman has the 
sanction of being the oldest player on the squad at the age of 27. Leaman 
anH° m Hershe y and is typical as a frosh football player in weighing 160 
no standing 5 ft. 9 in. in height. Abe is trying for a backfield berth. Bill 
icn is a late comer to the LV lineup and is a resident of Lebanon. Mich, 
hal° ' S 23, has been working out in the line. Dick Musselman is another 
he and undoubtedly come in for his share of service. Rather 

avy, 180 pounds to be exact, this Quakertowner will be used on both 
Q etense and offense. 

g Joining the squad recently was Frank Retrievi, a frosh wingman from 
do i er ' Pa. The LV coaching staff is anticipating using this 6 ft. 1 in. 190 
butfe r - at end * Howie Sellers, from Hummelstown, is listed in the lineup, 
in i- ' s a transfer from Shippensburg State Teachers and therefore is 
'"eligible for this season. 

u Lou Sorrentino is the only quarterback among the first year men and 
Wit*. made a ^ ine s h° wm S- He's taken to signal calling surprisingly well and 
anH u Iittle more of that collegiate shine he'll be ready to start glistening 
ttnu p Dankowski and Oxley pour that LV "T." He's one of the better 
do °sh footballers, and if he holds up under the fire of college ball, he'll 
ha n ' ce 'y f° r °ur future teams. Lou, who's home town is Sharon Hill, 
svf i n Under the tute lage of Coaches Ricker and Gockley and they are 
f 'ttly moulding a college back out of him. George Strong is the other 
5s u center. Seventeen, George is another heavy linesman, weighing 190 


ls from Bergenfield, N.J., where he played scholastic football. 

. Well, then these are our "green sixteen"; out of these may come the 
ainstay of Valley teams yet to be. Keep an eye on them, they're our fresh- 
n footballersnow, but may be our stars later.

LV to Appear 
In Second Bowl 

The Chocolate Bowl is an annual 
affair sponsored by the Harrisburg 
Rotary Club in an effort to raise 
funds which they use to help deserv- 
ing boys and girls. It was first inaug- 
urated at Hershey in 1947 when the 
Pennsylvania State College trounced 
Washington State University, 27-7 
before 16,000. In 1948 the University 
of West Virginia played Temple Uni- 
versity and beat them, 27-6 before 
6,000. Last season the Rotary decided 
to bring together two local colleges 
in an effort to promote more local 
interest and enthusiasm for the game. 
They succeeded in having Gettysburg 
College meet Lebanon Valley in a 
contest which saw the former win 
33-14. This year, in a continuance 
of that policy, LVC will play F&M.

27th Year— No. 1 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE, ANNVILLE. PA. TWsHrrv. Sentemher 21. 19! 

Thursday, September 21, 1950 


Hi Frosh: 

Finding life as a green Freshman rough, tough, and bewildering? But 
fun, too, isn't it? Don't let it get you down. We upperclassmen have been 
on the same road — we know. Just tilt that dink at a smart angle, pull 
back those shoulders, and grin! You're a frosh of LVC and proud of it. 

This is the start of the last lap of your educational journey and the 
best one. You're coming down the home stretch and it feels fine, but whoa 
thar! This is the part of the race that really counts— take a big look around, 
be sure you are in the right lane and then let 'er go. 

All this slightly allegorical talk just means that you should be con- 
sidering carefully how to get the most out of this college experience, not 
only in reference to your subjects and major (though they are mighty im- 
portant), but also those extracurricular activities. 

It might be said that the first, the subjects and courses, shape the mind 
and that the extra-activities develop personality. Certainly both develop 
outlook and undoubtedly one needs both to be a well-rounded individual 
(campus wheel, that is). 

So chart your course carefully for that job in the future and enter 
the activities that appeal to you with enthusiasm. A college always looks 
to its Freshmen for new life, and talent and a lot of big rousing campus 
spirit. You're the campus leaders of coming years. Don't let us down. If 
you give this new experience all you've got, you will get back much more 
than you put in. 

The old timers will tell you these are the best years of your life and 
m aybe vou w jjj sco ff at f^.^ ^ ut - m t ^ e enc j w hen a u j s sa jd arK j done 

you'll have to admit they were right. It won't be the last minute cramming, 
«ams or little blue books you will remember. They will fade behind a 
t01 "eground of fun and football and good fellowship. It will be the bull 
sessions and pranks you've played, the good buddies you've made that 
*h| be remembered. They all go into that indefinable something that is 
college and all it stands for. You may have to take the bitter with the 
SWe et (blue books and baseball) but that's what makes it interesting. Who 
said you were a softy, anyway? 

So give that dink another tilt and look cocky, Frosh. Lebanon Valley 
Wa iting. Let's see your smoke.

New Club Proves 
Very Successful 

The Political Science Club of Leba- 
non Valley College has a four fold 
purpose which is: to give practical 
training in the mechanics of govern- 
ment; to secure information relating 
to the political sciences through ad- 
dresses by guest speakers; to train the 
students of Lebanon Valley College 
for participation in the Intercollegiate 
Conference on Government; and to 
foster friendships by means of social 
activities. Although the Political Sci- 
ence Club has been established for only 
two years it has fulfilled its purpose 
and has gained great prestige and 
recognition on Lebanon Valley's 
carrjpus. This is illustrated by the 
fact that the past two presidents of 
the club were elected the Campus 
Leader by their respective classes and 
also by the large number of campus 
offices which are held by persons 
who hold membership in the Political 
Science Club. 

Acting President's Message 


It is with considerable pleasure that we welcome you to the campus 
of Lebanon Valley. Much thought has gone into the preparations for your 
first year at your Alma Mater, but if we have overlooked anything, please 
inform us. We want you to feel at home immediately. 

We are proud of our friendly atmosphere and hope that you will help 
us in maintaining it right from the beginning. Our students and faculty will 
be only too glad to assist you in every way possible. Indeed, you may find 
some of them really "overzealous" in their desire to assist! 

As the year progresses, you doubtless will have some adjustments to 
make Most Freshmen do. To help you in making those adjustments, you 
need only call on any of us. We will respond to the best of our ability. 

The four years of College which lie immediately ahead for you will 
be busy ones. They will pass rapidly. May I earnestly suggest that you 
live every day of those years. Work hard, play hard, so that your prepara- 
tions for your life's desires will be as complete as possible. 

Accept my very best wishes for your success. Your parents, friends, 
fellow students, and all of us will look for big things from the class of '54. 


Frederic K. Miller, Acting President 

Delphian Society 
Greets Freshmen 

In behalf of the members of the 
Delta Lambda Sigma, known as the 
Delphian Literary Society, I wish 
to extend to you new freshmen a 
most cordial welcome to the Lebanon 
Valley Campus. May your years here 
be filled with happiness and success. 

Dephian, L.V.'s youngest society in 
years but not in purpose and accomp- 
lishment was organized in February 
of 1922. It was founded on friendli- 
ness and congeniality inspired by the 
ardent enthusiasm of its loyal char- 
ter members. 

1 he spirit of the oracle of Delphian 
has never left its members, and the 
hearts of all its members, old and 
new, grow warm with love for the 

best gang of girls that ever met to- 
gether in friendship and fun! 

We have planned for you activities 
which we're sure you'll enjoy. We're 
interested solely in your happiness; 
any help we may give to you we shall 
give with a hearty smile! The Delph- 
ian girls are recognized by their co- 
operative, friendly spirit which makes 
Lebanon Valley one of the friendliest 
colleges in the East. 

We should like to offer all the 
women in L.V.C. the privileges and 
pleasures which our organization of- 
fers: a greater degree of friendship, 
student leadership training, furthering 
of college loyalty, and the promotion 
of better social relations among the 

We shall look forward to meeting 
you at our rush-week activities . . . the 
hike, tea, and the variety show! Don't 
miss the fun. We'll be seeing you 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 21, 1955 

Freshmen enjoying themselves on hike. 

Freshmen Invade 
The Conservatory 

The Conservatory is looking for- 
ward to another busy and exciting 

A few of the freshmen have already 
been engulfed in the activities. The 
college band is the first organization 
to swing into action. The Chocolate 
Bowl game is the first of an eight 
game season for the band. There are 
also parades, pep rides, rallies and a 
concert in the spring festival. The 
music for the May Day activities 
will be furnished by the band. 

Some Freshmen will become mem- 
bers of the Symphony Orchestra or 
the College Orchestra; both of these 
organizations give concerts in the 
early spring. 

Among the members of the Glee 
Club are ten Freshmen. Congratula- 
tions! The Glee Club highlights its 
season work with a tour. 

All the freshmen are invited to the 
student and faculty recitals presented 
in Engle Hall throughout the year. 
All in all the freshmen will become a 
party of these activities as actual par- 
ticipants or in the audience. 

The pleasure derived from these 
organizations and activities depends 
upon how much you put forth, so 
come out, freshmen — join the organi- 
zation or the audience and enjoy your 
college life. 

Council Serves 
As Coordinator 

It is the purpose of the Student- 
Faculty Council to serve as coordina- 
tor, for extra curricular activities and 
combined student government activity. 
- ... The Student-Faculty Council selves 
[as a central clearing-house for recom- 
mendations and complaints emanating 
from both the student body at large 
and the faculty. By this means the 
! Student-Faculty Council is ; able to 
foster understanding between the stu- 
dents and the faculty of Lebanon Val- 
ley College and to advance the gen- 
eral welfare of the college as a whole. 

Club Encourages 
Student Writers 

Once a month, in the comfortable, 
firelit atmosphere of Dr. Struble's 
living-room, Gieen Blotter members 
lovingly read their pet literary crea- 
tions. While the Official Critics of the 
evening pe r form last rites over the 
"work of art", everyone but the auth- 
or prepares his own list of derogatory 
remarks. After this ordeal, the rebuff- 
ed writer siinks away to a corner, 
licking his wounds. Only the entic- 
ing odors from Mrs. Struble's kitchen 
lure him back into society. 

The only thing not exaggerated in 
the above is the potency of the aroma 
of Mrs. Struble's refreshments. Act- 
ually, Green Blotter is a literary or- 
ganization of very congenial members 
who read their own poems, stories and 
essays, constructively criticize, and 
bask in the hospitality of the Strubles. 
A revision of the rules governing the 
club now permits submission of man- 
uscripts by new applicants any time 
during the year when there is an 
opening in the membership. 

Philo Presents 

If it's friends and fun you want, 
Frosh, Philo has the best of both to 
offer you. A small, though unrestrict- 
ed membership gives Philo the inti- 
macy that larger societies lack, besides 
offering its members the maximum 
opportunity for quick advancement. 
Philo's program of social activities 
will enrich your enjoyment of college 
life and introduce you quickly to the 
campus whirl. Picnics, dances, hay- 
rides, smokers, movies, home-talent 
varieties — give everyone the chance to 
entertain and be entertained. For the 
dramatically-minded there is an open- 
ing for talent in the annual Philo- 
Clio play. 

On September 22 Philo and Clio 
wil be host to the student body in an 
evening of entertainment. Don't7imiss 
it. And don't forget— for fun and 
friendship, it's Philo for you. 

Men Day Students 
Organize For 1950-51 

The Association of Men Day Stu- 
dents of Lebanon Valley College ob- 
viously includes all men not living in 
the Men's Dormitory. The governing 
body of this Association is the Men's 
Day student Congress, consisting of 
elected representatives from the four 
classes: five seniors, four juniors, four 
sophomores, and two freshmen. The 
Congress has powe.s of legislation, 
trying offenders, and imposing pen- 
alties. These powers extend over all 
members of the Association, and are 
applied specifically in the case of the 
Freshmen Program in coordination 
with all the other governing bodies of 
the campus. 

In addition, the Congress regularly 
supervises and sponsors recreational 
and social activities of the day stu- 
dents, working closely with the Wo- 
men's Commuter Council. 

Undoubtedly the Freshmen Pro- 
gram is one of the major activities 
undertaken by campus organizations; 
and the leadership furnished by the 
four governing bodies of the day and 
dormitory students is explained by 
their special constitutional grants of 
authority and power in this program. 

Kalo Plans 
Rush Week 

B.M O.C. . . . Kalo men are Big 
Men On Campus. Kalo is short for 
Kalozetean Literary Society, a very 
misleading name. It is the largest 
organization on L.V. campus and its 
first function is fun; strictly social. 
Some of these functions are hayrides, 
picnics, or parties with Kalo's sister 
society Delphian. 

The highlight of the year comes 
in March when Kalo and Delphian 
have "their" weekend. K-D week- 
end begins with a play on Fri- 
day night which members of both 
ioiceties produce. Saturday night a 
dinner-dance is held usually ir a ho- 
tel in one of the larger cities such as 
Harrisburg, Lancaster, or Reading 
The closing event of Kalo's year is a 
stag banquet. 

In a week or so Kalo will introduce 
itself to you. The time and place will 
be announced later. During Rush 
Week the men will have an opportun- 
ity to join Kalo. See you around 
campus, fellows. 

S.CA. Cabinet 
Attends Camp, 
Welcomes Frosh 

The S.CA. Cabinet, better known 
as the Student Christian Association, 
a combination of the Y.W.C.A. and 
Y.M.C.A., held its annual retreat at 
Camp Greble, Lebanon's "Y" camp, 
during September 8, 9, and 10. The 
group of nineteen, plus three chaper- 
ons, assembled at North Hall, Friday. 
September 8 and went, via a caravan 
of autos, to the camp site. There, un- 
der the leadership of Martin Trostle, 
the cabinet mixed a desirable amount 
of recreation with a huge mountain 
of work to create an action-packed 
weekend for all. 

Freshmen have experienced the 
program planed for them at the re- 
treat. The church reception Monday 
night, the hike Tuesday night, and 
the production straight from "Broad- 
way" Wednesday night, all highlighted 
the week's festivities, not mentioning , 
the informal midnight teas at 10 
P.M. Sunday night, Sept. 10. All these 
activities plus proctoring at the Frosh 
Exams, were conceived by the minds 
of the cabinet. 

Every cabinet member "slung" hash 
for three meals a day from Monday 
to Wednesday. So, all in all, con- 
sidering the baggage handling p 
done Sunday afternoon and evening 
the S.CA. did a masterful work keep- | 
ing the Freshmen busy and themselves ^ 

One hundred seventy-five people 
enjoyed themselves and "danced out 
their "socks" to the utmost last Friday 
night, as Don Trostle and his Orches- 
tra, donating their services to tn 
cause, played beautiful strains of n} u ' 
sic. Again the S.CA. cabinet supp" efl 
everything free of charge. 

The "S.CA." on Campus" was the 
topic of the first Fellowship Hoy 
last night at 7:30 P.M. in Philo n*£ 
Each cabniet member presented - 
plans for the year in the C.A- P 
gram. Interest sheets were filled 
by those present to provide the ca ^ 
net with information in the ^- " 
attempt to include as many stu ae ^ 
as possible in its active P r °8 
throughout the year.

Navy Announces 
College Training 
Program For 1950 

The Navy announced recently that 
the fifth nation-wide competitive ex- 
amination for its College Training 
Program has been scheduled for De- 
cember 9, 1950, and will be open to 
high school seniors or graduates with- 
in the age requirements. Successful 
candidates will be given a four-year 
college education at government ex- 
pense and will be commissioned offi- 
cers of the Navy or Marine Corps 
upon graduation. 

The program is open to male citi- 
zens of the United States between the 
ages of 17 and 21, and quotas have 
been assigned to each state and terri- 
tory on the basis of its high school 
population. Those who are successful 
in passing the aptitude test will be 
interviewed and given physical exam- 
inations; then, if they are found in all 
respects qualified, their names will be

Navy expects to enter about 1600 stu- 
dents into the program commencing 
with the fall term of college, 1951. 

The students selected by these com- 
petitive examinations will be assign- 
ed to the 52 Naval Reserve Officers'

Community Concert 
Program Announced 

Once again Lebanon Valley College 
has been invited to join the concert- 
goers of Lebanon and vicinity in at- 
tending the series of programs that is 
being brought to the Lebanon High 
School Auditorium by the Community 
Concert Association. This year's pro- 
gram features the following artists: 

November 6, 1950 — Svetlova, Bal- 
lerina. Youth, beauty, grace, an artist 
of talent and intelligence — these des- 
cribe Marina Svetlova, former star 
of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, 
who shattered a tradition of ten years' 
standing when she was appointed Pri- 
ma Ballerina of the Metropolitan Op- 
era. Now, between seasons at the 
Met, Svetlova continues to carry the 
art of the dance to the rest of the 
country with her own ensemble com- 
posed of herself, two solo dancers, 
and a concert pianist — an unusual star 
in an unusual program. 

December 11, 1950 — Revelers Quar- 
tet. The incomparable Revelers, from 
whose ranks such famous singing 
stars as James Melton have arisen, 
have been engaged by the Lebanon 
Community Concert Association for 
the listening pleasure of its members. 
Considered to be the most famous 
male quartet in the world today, the 
record-breaking Revelers have tri- 
umphed in concert in practically ev- 
ery state of the U.S.A., and in Can- 
ada. With each member a soloist of 
repute in his own right, and the four 
men singing an extensive repertoire 
of arrangements in English specially 
created for them, audiences have been 
quick to appreciate their talents and 
their choice of material. On every 
Revelers' reogram, there is something 
for everybody — from art songs to the 
latest hits of the day. A "must see." 

January 23, 1951 — Nan Merriman, 
mezzo-soprano. Miss Merriman is a 
singer of national reknown. A fre- 
quent soloist with Toscanini, Stokow- 
ski, Bruno Walter, DeSabata, Bern- 
stein, and Leinsdorf, she is also one of 
the top recitalists in the country. Her 
beauties of voice and of person have 
established Miss Merriman as a fav- 
orite in these fields. Her rich mezzo- 
soprano voice has often been recorded 
by RCA Victor Records, for individ- 
ual enrichment. This evening prom- 
ises to be one of excitement and en- 

March 29, 1951— Rochester Sym- 
phony. The Rochester Symphony is 
not unknown to the many concert 
goers of this area, because they have 
appeared here in numerous concerts 
during previous years. Their programs 
are well-rounded, and ably performed. 
Because of the success of their past 
concerts, and the listening pleasure 
that is welcomed so enthusiastically 
by their patrons, the Rochester Sym- 
phony has been booked once again by 
the Lebanon Community Concert As- 
sociation for the conclusion of this 
series of concerts.

Historical Society 
Begins Publication 
Of Miller's Thesis 

The Lebanon County Historical So- 
ciety has begun publication of the 
doctoral dissertation of Dr. Frederic 
K. Miller, head of the History Depart- 
ment and Acting President of Lebanon 
Valley College. The dissertation, The 
Rise of an Iron Community: An Eco- 
nomic History of Lebanon County, 
Pennsylvania, from 1740 to 1865, was 
written by Dr. Miller in partial ful- 
fillment of the requirements for the 
degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the 
University of Pennsylvania. In this 
work Dr. Miller "attempts to show 
how a small agricultural section of 
Pennsylvania developed, in a period 
of less than a century and a half, 
into a community in which the iron 
industry became predominant." 

This important study in the history 
of Lebanon County will appear in 
three portions as numbers in the cur- 
rent volume of the publications of the 
local Historical Society. The first 
portion, which has just appeared, 
includes three chapters entitled "Topo- 
graphy and Early History," "The Peo- 
ple," and "Agriculture." The second 
portion, which will appear in 1951, 
will contain two chapters entitled "Big 
Hill, Middle Hill and Grassy Hill," 
and "Cornwall — Plantation and Furn- 
ace." The third and final portion, to be 
published at a later date, will include 
chapters on "Early Expansion of the 
Iron Industry to 1840," and "The 
Golden Age: Two Decades of Indus- 
trial Expansion, 1840-1860." The 
publications of the local Historical 
Society are distributed to members of 
the society, to local and state histori- 
cal societies of Pennsylvania and 
nearby states, to college and univer- 
sity libraries in the same region, and 
to other subscribers. 

Dr. Miller, a native of Lebanon 
County, has been serving the Lebanon 
County Historical Society for a dec- 
ade as Secretary and Librarian. He is 
also active in The Pennsylvania Fed- 
eration of Historical Society and the 
Pennsylvania Historical Asssociation. 

Professor Ralph S. Shay, assistant 
professor of History at Lebanon Val- 
ley College, is editor of the publica- 
tions of the Society. 

Richwine Speaker 
For SCA Service 

A small but appreciative audience 
attended the S.C.A. recognition service 
on Monday, September 25 in the 
Lutheran Church to hear Reverend 
Harry Richwine speak to the group. 

Reverend Richwine, pastor of the 
host church, based his address on 
the growth which takes place during 
the student's four year stay on Leba- 
non Valley Campus. He stressed the

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 28, 1950 



In Memoriam 

Clyde Alvin Lynch was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, August 24, 
1891, the son of John Henry Lynch and Carmina Blanch (Keys) Lynch, and 
departed this life on August 6, 1950. He is survived by his wife, Edith L. 
(Basehore) Lynch, a daughter, Rose Eleanor (Hemperly), a son John How- 
ard, and four grandchildren: Charlotte Ann Hemperly, John Cecil Hemperly, 
Patricia Joanne Lynch and John Howard Lynch, Jr.; also a brother and 
four sisters. 

He received his pre-college education in the public schools of Pennsyl- 
vani and the Lebanon Valley Academy. In 1918 he was graduated with 
the A.B. degree from Lebanon Valley College and later received the B.D. 
degree from the Bonebrake Theological Seminary (1921), the A.M. from 
Lebanon Valley College (1925), and the A.M. (1929) and the Ph.D. (1931) 
from the University of Pennsylvania. He was also honored with the D.D. 
degree (1926) by his alma mater and with the L.L.D. degree by Albright 
College (1937). 

His professional career was divided between the pastorate and educa- 
tional service. 

He early dedicated his life to the ministry, receiving the Quarterly- 
Conference License in 1909, the Annual-Conference License in 1910, and 
was ordained by Bishop W. M. Weekley in 1916. He served the following 
pastorates: Centerville Circuit, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 1911-1912; 
Linglestown and Rockville, Pennsylvania, 1912-1918; Antioch and Pyrmont, 
Montgomery County, Ohio, 1918-1921; Ephrata, Pennsylvania, 1921-1925; 
and Second Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1925-1930. 

From 1928 to 1930, while he was doing graduate work at the University 
of Pennsylvania, Dr. Lynch also served as Assistant Instructor in Psychology, 
and in 1930 he was called to serve as Professor of Homiletics and Practical 
Theology at Bonebrake Theological Seminary, which position he held until 
he was elected to the presidency of Lebanon Valley College in 1932. 

Dr. Lynch's interests and connections were many and varied, and he 
occupied a large place in the organizations of which he was a part. 

He represented his church as a member of the Board of Christian 
Education and Chairman of the Committee on Educational Institutions; as 
Delegate to four (1933, 1937, 1941, 1945) General Conferences and to the 
merging General Conference of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ 
and the Evangelical Church at Johnstown, in 1946, which formed the 
Evangelical United Brethren Church, and was the Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Episcopacy. 

In the East Pennsylvania Conference (U.B.) he was Chairman of the 
committee on Conference Relations and a members of the Council of 
Administration and of the Finance Committee. 

He was an ardent believer in interdenominational cooperation, and was 
Vice President of the Pennsylvania Council of Churches, a member of the 
Pennsylvania Council of Religious Education and of the Executive Committee 
of the State Y.M.C.A. He was also denominational representative of the 
Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America, alternate member of 
the Executive Committee and member of the Committee on Research and 

In the field of Education he occupied a large place. In the Pennsyl- 

vania State Educational Association he was a member of the Executive Com- 
mittee for a number of years (1937-1938, 1948), and at different times was 
President of the Department of Higher Education (1948), President of the 
Southern Convention District (1937), delegate to the National Education 
Association (1947, 1948), and Chairman of the College and University 
Section (1947). He was also a member of the National Educational Associa- 
tion and the Department of Higher Education; of the American Association 
ot School Administrators; a member of the Pennsylvania Commission on 
Area Colleges and Chairman of the Advisory Committee, Area No. 2 
(1946-1948); and member of the Executive Committee of the Pennsylvania 
Association of Colleges and Universities (1948-1950). 

His purely intellectual interests were expressed in his membership in 
the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American 
Psychological Association, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Science. He 
was the author of numerous articles in psychological, religious, and educa- 
tional publications and was much in demand as a speaker on varied subjects. 

His participation in civic activities was extensive. He was a member of 
the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce, Chairman of the Board of Manage- 
ment, Lebanon U.S.O., during the war years, and was honored with the 
Distinguished Service Medal from La Societe des 40 Hommes et 8 Chevaux. 
La Grande Voiture de Pennsylvania for the Development of Good Will and 
Americanism. He was Chairman of the Pennsylvania Commission on Dis- 
placed Persons since 1948 and National Chairman of the Commission on the 
Resettlement of Displaced Persons with Professional Skills, in which capaci- 
ties he rendered exceptional service to suffering humanity. A member of the 
faculty of Lebanon Valley College, Dr. Helene Kostruba, herself a displaced 
person whom he aided, requested in her own name and in the name of others 
thus assisted, that a special tribute be paid the heartfelt interest and unselfish 
devotion which Dr. Lynch put into this service to human misfortune and 

He was a member of the Lebanon Rotary Club and past president and 
member of its Committee on International Understanding and Good Will; 
and of the Executives Club and Torch Club of Harrisburg, and of The 
Newcomen Society of England. 

He held a prominent place in the Masonic fraternity. He was a member 
of Ephrata Lodge No. 665 Free and Accepted Masons; Lancaster Lodge ot 
Perfection and Harrisburg Consistory; and an honorary member of the 
Supreme Council 33 of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Free- 
masonry; of Hermit Commandery, Knights Templar; of Trinity Conclave 
No. 4, Red Cross of Constantine; of Quittapahilla Forest No. 25 Tall Cedars 
of Lebanon; of Zembo Temple of the Ancient Arable Order of the Nobles 
of the Mystic Shrine and of the Lebanon County Shrine Club. 

At the time of his death he was Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of 
Pennsylvania and Supreme Chaplain of the Supreme Forest of the Tall 
Cedars of Lebanon. He was a past president of the Lebanon County Club of 
the Harrisburg Consistory. 

The funeral service for Doctor Lynch was held in the Evangelical United 
Brethren Church at Annville on August 9 with Dr. W. A. Wilt in charge 
Those participating in the service were Dr. I. N. Seldomridge, Dr. Paul E. V. 
Shannon, Dr. D. E. Young, Bishop J. Balmer Showers, and Dean A. H. M- 
Stonecipher. Doctor Wilt, for sixteen years Doctor Lynch's pastor, gave the 
memorial address. 

President Lynch lived intensely, and this long account of his activities 
tells only part of the .story. Whatever he did, he did with an emotional 
warmth and enthusiasm which greatly enhanced the value of all his services. 
He was a rich and many-sided personality, and he will be remembered 
variously by people in the various relationships of life. In the family he 
a devoted son, brother, father and grandfather; in the Church he was the 
devout servant and prophet of God; in civic relations he was the friend ot 
man; in the College he was the intellectual leader, dedicated to the advance- 
ment of learning and the development of young people in wisdom and 
godliness. But to all who knew him in whatever way, his passing has cqnje 
as a profound shock and grief and leaves a vacancy difficult or impossible 
to fill. 

With faith in God, in whom he put his trust, we bow in humble sub- 
mission and say farewell, not forever, but only until the sunrise of tnaI 
new day in which he now lives.

Ramblin' With Woods 

As You Like It 

'"Wonderful . . . terrifhc . . . out of this world . . . Hepburn at her 
best ..." such were the comments of the students after the Theatre 
Guild production of As You Like It . . . Paul Stambach and his date from 
Juilliard were there . . . Bob Daughtery and Barb Ranck from South Hall 
took in the show . . . also saw Pat Werner, Fvelyn Toser, Mark Raessler 
. . . Street Car Named Desire is coming next. 
Things Are Stirrin' 

These freshmen are really going to town . . . see the list of "frosh" in 
the Glee Club? . . . Fran Shroyer and Darlene Moyer are the new freshmen 
cheerleaders . . . The new boy cheerleader will be chosen this week . . . AND 
the freshmen are really "on the ball" getting candidates ready for the big 
class election ... it looks like it's going to be a "hot" campaign . . . The 
one party has chosen Lo Sorrentino (this fellow is really going to go places 
in football) for president, Bill Dunn (Stretch to his friends) for vice president, 
Gail Edgar (this gal's from South Hall) for secretary . . . and Mel Hostetter 
(Remember the yellow convertible?) for treasurer ... the other party throw- 
ing its hat in the ring consists of Bill Starkweather (the visitor of Sheridan 
Hall) and Ted Fisher . . . the other members are not known at this printing 
. . . See those new majorettes? . . . Need we say more? 
Notes from a Little Black Book 

Hear about the Fudge Story of Sheridan Hall? This is one for the 
books . . . See that red outfit of Francene Swope's . . . Members of the 
W.A.A. did some "visiting" of the freshmen girls this week ... A certain girl's 
(Betty's her first name) Southern fried chicken is really making history on 
campus . . . The football players were well entertained after the game last 
Saturday . . . Classic remark of the week: "He's getting married to that 
girl he's engaged to, can you top that?" . . . "Night patrol" was the order of 
the week recently . . . the freshmen did a good job of guarding the campus 
from F&M . . . Student Teachers started on their merry ways to school this 
week . . . mid-night oil is burned nightly on lesson plans. 
And the Rains Came 

Did you ever see such weather? . . . well, the college picnic finally "came 
off" last Thursday . . . naturally the seniors outdid the faculty in the ball 
game . . . the girls were even allowed to wear their "jeans" in the dining hall 
. . . the day students were well represented . . . the rains didn't stop Philo- 
Clio from having its pep-rally and dance . . . but where was everybody? 
. . . Parsons "Dick" Kohler was there on hand to have the last rites for 
F&M . . . Claude Seifert was the corpse . . . the freshmen did a swell job 
as pall-bearers . . . "Swing Your Pardner" was the order of the evening . . . 
"Let's have more square dancing this year" . . . even the chaperones approved 
that cider . . . Ruth Ann Brown was there with her "import" from Prince- 
ton . . . Gene Fisher and Arlene Shuey still have "that" look . . . the 
"laughing" record was the hit of the party . . Dick Schiemer was seen danc- 
ing in his socks . . . 
There Was a Game 

What Weather! . . . couldn't ask for better football weather . . . but 
we'll be prepared for the next time ... oh, for a blanket . . . where was the 
cheering section? ... the band made a swell showing . . . "Col. Boogie" was 
never played like that before . . . lots of grads there . . . that phone system 
was really something ... we found the "inside dope" on what went on inside 
the "huddle" — the problem was: "What was the phone number of that blonde 
sitting on the 50 yard line?" . . . that F&M midget was something new in 
cheerleaders . . . that "liquid refreshment" really did something for Bing 
Gulliver . . . those new hats the boys are sporting are — w-e-1-1, different . . . 
There is BIG NEWS coming your way . . . Watch for it! See you at the 
big Kalo-Delphian party this week-end.

Pigskin Picking Finds Big 
Schools Ready to Open Up 

By /. Noem 

. Concerning last weekend's picks, your prognosticated had the amazingly 
wonderful occur by calling 34 out of 41 grid games correct for a fabulous 
.829 percentage. Aside from feeling proud of this we are only too happy to 
take a bow since Georgia followed through on our special prediction and did 
trip Maryland, by 27-7. 

The contests that threw us off were, Kentucky beat LSU 14-0, Okla- 
homa A&M victimized Arkansas 12-7, Boston College and Wake Forest 
fought to a 7-7 tie, Lehigh chopped up Delaware 21-0, Tulsa fooled us instead 
of San Francisco as the latter won 23-14, Denver lost to Colorado A&M 
30-14, and the surprise of the week as far as our guesses are concerned was 
Virginia Military's triumph over William & Mary, 25-19. 

In our crystal ball we see the following for the weekend: 
For our special this week we have chosen the Michigan-Michigan State 
classic. In this one it's now or never as far as State fans are concerned. The 
last two have been very close and although the Spartans made such a fine 
showing against Oregon State, we're sorry to see the East Lansing people 
disappointed again. Michigan is still loaded! 

Michigan 14 Michigan State 6 

Alabama-Tulane: The boys from New Orleans won't stem the Crimson 
Tide this season. 'Bama's been buildin' and the Green Wave will feel the 
affects of Red Drew's reconstruction. 

Alabama 20 Tulane 6 

Army-Colgate: In toohtpaste — yes; in football — no! Colgate will be out- 
maneuvered by Earl Blaik's well oiled Black Knight touchdown machine in 
this opener of a non-murderous West Point schedule. 

Army 34 Colgate 6 

Auburn-Vanderbilt: Auburn couldn't even beat little Wofford last week, 
so here's an easy one for Vandv. 

Vand erbilt 27 Aubu rn 
Boston College-Oklahoma: Bean-towners (especially this crew) and 
(these) fellas from the prairie lands don't compare "no how." 

Oklahoma 32 Boston College 7 

Brown- Yale: Two mediocre teams, but Bruno the Bruin seems to have 
more than the Boola-Boolas. 

Brown 27 Yale 13 

California-Oregon: Oregon has improved, but not that much; although 
Cal isn't at its greatest either. 

California 14 Oregon 

Cornell-Lafavette: Here, Lafavette is sort of stepping out of class a little, 
Corn ell 26 Lafaye tte 6 

Duke-Pittsburgh: This should be one of the better games of the day, 
however since the Blue Devils are at home the Panthers aren't going to 
appreciate this type of "Southern hospitalitv" one bit. 

Duk e 13 Pittsburg h 7 

Duquesne-Florida: Those poor Dukes, always trying for the real big 
time on an out-matched schedule. It's going to be a dismal collegiate foot- 
ball weekend in Pittsburgh. 

Flori da 26 Duques ne 8 

Georgetown-Penn State: The Nittany Lions have a new coach but do not 
have the material of the Cotton Bowl year, nevertheless they will out do the 

Penn State 19 Georgetown 7 

Illinois-Ohio: All we can say here is, that we don't envy the coach of 
Ohio University one bit. 

Illinois 33 Ohio 

Indiana-Nebraska: Indiana seems to have enough Pennsyivanians to get 
by those up-and-coming Cornhuskers. 

Indiana 26 Nebraska 12 

Iowa State-Northwestern: These two are rather evenly matched; however, 
past performances tend to persuade one to vote for Northwestern. 

Northwestern 13 Iowa State 7 

Iowa-Southern California: The Pacific Coast will come mighty close to 
beating the Big Ten in this one, but the latter will prevail. 

Iowa 28 Southern California 20 

Kentucky-Mississippi: Vito Parilli should make a big difference in 
this clash. 

Kentu cky 20 Mississ ippi 6 

Louisiana State-College of the Pacific: In this battle of the Tigers the 
ones from the Bayou country will survive. COP's bid for the big-time can't 
work with Eddie LeBaron now an alumnus.

Mountaineers Meet 
Dutchmen Saturday 

Mt. St. Mary's College of Emmits- 
burg, Maryland, will be Lebanon Val- 
ley's foot': all foe this Saturday night 
under the lamps in the Lebanon 
High School Stadium. The game will 
mark the sixteenth time that the 
Flying Dutchmen and the Mountain- 
eers have met in gridiron combat 
since the series started back in 1908 
when LVC edged the Marylanders by 
a 12-6 count. From that time Leba- 
non Valley has won ten, lost four, 
while two games ended in stalemates. 
Last year the Blue and White got by 
Mary's 14-7 in a really thriller 
at Harrisburg. 

The Mount, which is the second 
oldest Catholic college in the United 
States, is coached by former Notre 
Dame great, John Law, who captained 
Knute Rockne's national champions 
of 1929. His assistant is Pete Caruso, 
a graduate of St. Francis of Brooklyn. 
Mt. St. Mary's has a student enroll- 
ment of 550 and in athletics is a 
member of the Mason-Dixon confer- 

The only common opponent met 
lasj year by both schools was Western 
Maryland who trounced them 32-0, 
and Lebanon Valley 39-7. The 
Mount's overall record for last sea- 
son's campaign was three wins and 
six losses. Last week the Emmits- 
burgers took the lid off their 1950 
schedule by losing to Shippensburg 
State Teachers 18-14. 

Here is the probably Mount lineup 
for Saturday night's game with the 
usual facts concerning such. 

A quarterback will not be named 
until kickoff time.

Dutchmen Revisions 

As far as the Dutchmen are con- 
cerned, Coach Ricker announced the 
following adjustments for Saturday 
night's clash with the Mountaineers. 
On the offense Ed Hutchko will be at 
center, Paul Edwards at tackle, Lou 
Sorrentino at quarterback, and Dick 
Musselman at right halfback. 

Defensively, Tom Quinn will be in 
the guard slot, Tesnar will play backer 
up, Edwards or Tom Duke will be at 
the wings, and Ray Dankowski or 
Chuck Maston will be at the quarter- 
back position. 

In 1912 the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege football team defeated the High- 
spire Athletic Club 102-0. 

Mt. St. Mary's defeated Lebanon 
Valley College 7 to 6 in 1930. In 
193 1 the "Dutchmen" reversed the 
process, beating the Mounts 7 to 6.

Chocolate Bowled 




By F. & M. Diplomats, 13-7 

Playing before 9,000 chilled spectators in windswept Hershey Stadium, 
Lebanon Valley opened its 1950 football season on a dismal note as Franklin 
& Marshall marked up two touchdowns in the first half and then held on for 
dear life in the second portion of the fray to drop the Flying Dutchmen 
13-7 in the Fourth Annual Chocolate Bowl. The Diplomats' first score was 
a fluke if there ever was one and this combined with the fact that the Valley 
aggregation proved rather unimpressive until the second half contributed 
greatly to the Lancastrian dangling of Coach Ralph Ricker's Dutchmen. 
The initial stages of the first period didn't prove much except that it showed 
of! what both sides had offensively and defensively and consisted of a number 
of punt exchanges since neither squad seemed able to gain enough ground 
to actually get anywhere. Then it happened! 

Franklin & Marshall's Bob Lucas kicked to the LVC 32 and from here 
the local Blue and White started on what they hoped would culminate in a 
score as Dale Shellenberger, our fleet-footed halfback, raced the ball up to the 
opponents' 48 yard line. From this point quarterback Ray Dankowski took 
to the air waves and sent the oval sailing into the left flat. The ball 
however, while intended for end Glenn Thomas, disastrously juggled out of 
his hands into the appreciative arms of the Dips' Bobby High who was 
Johnny-on-the-spot. High took immediate advantage of this break, then 
shifted gears to high speed and tore down the turf toward pay dirt. He was 
vainly followed by several LV pursuants of which the last, Dankowski, 
made a futile dive to snag him before he roared into the end zone for the 
TD. Herb Galebach missed the extra point but now the Lancaster Countians 
possessed a lead which the Rickermen never overcame. 
Diplomats Score Again 
Coach Woody Sponaugle's charges 
set up their other registration in the 
second quarter when Lucas came very 
close to a coffin corner kick by boot- 
ing the leather dead on the Valley 
three. Unable to untangle themselves 
from this predicament, Marty Gluntz, 
with the wind against him, footed the 
Pigskin out to his own 37 from where 
the Dips began "operation overhead." 
Bobby Werst tossed an aerial to Bruce 
Westerdahl for a first down on the 
Annvillers' 26 and duplicated this 
eat by flipping for another as he hit 
Jack Lowder on the Dutchmen 12. 
Not changing the plan of attack one 
% Werst cut loose with another sky 
° a " and now the Diplomats were 
Rocking on the touchdown door. 
lr ?t, the Sponauglemen worked for 
eir third consecutive first down 
the one-yard marker and from 
"ere Lowder threw himself over the 
ajacent line for a score. Galebach 
n en split the uprights as the eventual 
vl «ors went to the fore 13-0. 
Ine Diplomats did their last ser~ 
Us footballing in the waning mo- 

cm !? of the first half when the y 

o u 8nt Dankowski behind his own line 
rif Scnrr >mage deep in Dutchmen ter- 
z wy and pushed him into the end 
san *° r wnat was presumed to be a 
. et y- However, they lost the two- 
winter when the officials ruled that 
m!y,kad been off-side and that was 
that for F&M.

Vfiple dismay of the Dutchmen, 

'Wov^ ,mure d his knee 
UVe d from the game 


The ball eventually ended up on the 
F&M 8 after Shellenberger scooted to 
the 1 for a first down and Walt 
Shonosky, who showed up well as a 
fullback, lugged it to the 14. Shelly 
carried to the aforementioned stripe 
as the quarter ended. The sterling 
Shelly continued to shine as he took 
a buck pass from Sorrentino that net- 
ted three yards and it certainly looked 
as though the Dutchmen would cross 
the line on this golden opportunity. 
However, the LVC attack was halted 
when the last lunge at the line ended 
but one foot short of a six-pointer. 
Lucas then punted F&M out of dang- 
er for the time being, until a holding 
penalty set the Dips back on their 
own 22. 

Walt Goes Over 

Here's where the Ricker-runners 
started perambulating. A bad pass 
from center and Barrett Oxley's 
swiftness in pinning down F&M's 
punter gave the Dutchmen possession 
on the Dip's 10. It was now or never 
as far as the Valley faithful were 
concerned. Shelly's fancy foot work 
ate up some yardage and when Dan- 
kowski's passes proved uneventful, 
Shonosky was handed the porkhide. 
Walt took over from there, raising 
the Valley loyals to their epitomy of 
joy for the night as he romped around 
left end and steamrollered into pay- 
land standing up for Lebanon Valley's 
first touchdown of the season. John 
Buffamoyer placekicked the bonus 
marker and that ended the Flying 
Dutchmen scoring right there. 

It may have ended the scoring but 
the spirit and ever present will to 
fight to win was not curtailed by any 
means. The Dutchmen fought on and 
received a great break when an F&M 
fumble was recovered in mid-field. 
Pressed for time, a long pass attempt 
was made but F&M's Steve Michissin 
intercepted, clinching any possibility 
of another score for the night. That 
was the game right there. In con- 
clusion, it was a spirited squadron of 
Flying Dutchmen in the second half 
and they definitely showed their po- 
tentialities by giving F&M a much 
harder time of it than they had at 
first. It was a tough one to lose con- 
sidering the advantageous breaks

which came our way, but that's foot-

present the fans with the same spirit 
and play-to-win gumption that pre- 
vailed over them in the second half, 
come this Saturdy night.

In the first intramural touch 
football game of the newly inaug- 
urated intramural athletic set up, 
:he Seniors emerged victorious over 
the Sophomores, 12-0. 

Ralph R. Mease, Professor of Physi- 
cal Education, has announced that an 
excellent intramural program for the 
1950-51 school year has been arrang- 
ed by the Physical Education Depart- 
ment. The program, besides touch 
football which was scheduled to get 
under way this week if class teams 
were organized, will consist of basket- 
ball, volleyball, handball, squash, and 
softball. As has already been noted, 
this year the competition will be by 
classes in seven different leagues or 
tournaments of athletic endeavor. It 
is hoped by the department that 
enough freshmen, sophomores, jun- 
iors, and seniors turn out to play in 
the various sports so that keen intra- 
mural competition may be developed 
here on the campus. 

Records will be kept of all games 
and a point system has been devised 
through the results of which an even- 
tual class champion will be crowned. 
Ten points will be awarded to the 
class or individual winning the league 
or tournament, five points to the run- 
ner-up, three points for third place 
and one point for the fourth place 
team or individual. In tourneys where 
individuals participate, the points will 
be awarded to the classes of which 
the victors are members. The pay off 
will come at the close of the school 
year when the class that has accumu- 
lated the most points will have its 
name inscribed on a plaque which 
will be placed in the new physical 
education building. 

Competition will be held in the fol- 
lowing sports on the approximate 
dates listed: 

Touch Football — Sept. 27 to Nov. 3 
Day Student Basketball — Jan. 9 to 
Feb. 28 

Dormitory Basketball — Jan. 9 to Feb. 

Volleyball — February 
Handball — February 12 to 28 
Squash — February 26 to March 16 
Softball — April 16 to May 20.

College Library 
Is Expanding 

The Lebanon Valley College li- 
brary is growing out of its building. 
This information was disclosed by 
Miss Helen E. Myers. Colege librar- 
ian, in a recent check of library rec- 
ords. In 1921, at which time Miss 
Myers began her records, the col- 
lege had 5,513 volumes on hand. By 
1950 the college had 47,387 books in 
a library originally designed to house 
12,000 books. 

In 1921 the Lebanon Valley College 
library had one full-time librarian 
and several student assistants. This 
year ihe library employs a staff that 
includes Miss Myers, librarian; Mr. 
Donald E. Fields, associate librarian; 
Mrs. Donald E. Fields, cataloguer; 
Miss Esther A. Shenk, circulation as- 
sistant; Miss Anna B. Dunkle and 
Mrs. Ralph S. Shay, technical assist- 
ants; and nine student assistants. 

The college library contains three 
special collections of books of great 
value to scholars and researchers. The 
Hiram Herr Shenk Collection, includ- 
ing the Heilman Library, contains a 
history of the cultural backgrounnd 
of the Pennsylvania German area, the 
counties of Lebanon, York, Berks, and 
Lehigh. The United Brethren Church 
collection contains reports of coopera- 
ting conferences from 1921 to the 
present. The C. B. Montgomery Mem- 
orial Collection of Transcripts is com- 
posed of transcripts of manuscripts in 
the Library of Congress, the British 
Museum, and the older libraries of 
Philadelphia. It deals with early col- 
onial history, the Pennsylvania Ger- 
mans, and the Indian situation in the 

The library has recently begun a 
modernization program with the in- 
troduction of a microfilm library and 
a Recordak microfilm reader. There 
is a microfilm file on daily issues of 
the New York Times from 1945 to

Clio, Philo Meet; 
Discuss Plans 

Confronted with various import- 
ant issues, the members of Philo Con- 
ducted a meeting with the Clio society 
on Tuesday evening, Sept. 26, at 7:00 
P. M. At this joint meeting two major 
issues were given attention. The first 
of these was the selection of a play as 
well as the appointments of members 
to serve on various play committees. 
Prof. Gilbert McKlveen, who so ably 
directed the play last year and who 
has consented to do so again this year, 
spoke to the group on the desire- 
ability of presenting the well-known 
play, Kind Lady, the details of which 
he explained in a fine manner. The 
second item was that of appointing a 
committee to begin inquiry as to a 
;site for the Philo-Clio dinner-dance 
to be held next spring. Some excellent 
places have already been mentioned 
and are under cosideration. 

At the closed meeting of Philo 
members, immediately following the 
joint meeting, the topics under discus- 
sion were confined mostly to the rush 
iweek activities, although other issues 
were brought forth. Progress on a 
new constitution for Philo was an- 
nounced by the committee at work on 
it. Significant among the other events 
of the evening were the selection of 
committees for the Philo Smoker, the 
discussion of the Philo initiation pro- 
cedures, and the selection of Bob 
Feaster as representative to the base- 
ball game between the pledges of 
Philo and Kalo on the afternoon of 
October 10. 

On Kalo's Agenda 

President Joseph Shemeta of Kalo, 
today issued an open invitation to all 
men students to join him this evening 
in attending and enjoying a smoker 
sponsored by that organization. Plan- 
ned is a comedy skit as well as a 
showing of last year's May-day film 
. . . and of course smokes and food 
being not first but foremost on the 
agenda. The time and place is 8:00 
p.m. in Kalo Hall. 

A meeting for all freshmen initiates 
will be held Monday evening in Kalo 
Hall. It is compulsory that all poten- 
tial Kalo members attend. The meet- 
ing will be short and will commence 
at 8:00 p.m. 

Initiation will take place Thursday 
evening the 12th of this month. Pled- 
ges are asked to report to the Admini- 
stration Building at 7:30 p.m. The 
Committee on Initiations has met and 
a "delightful" programme has been

Clio Combines Fashion 
With Traditional Tea 

Tea was served in North Hall Par- 
lor on Friday, September 28, by the 
CI ionian Society. Faculty members, 
guests, and Clio members were greet- 
ed at the door by the President, Sara 
Ann Etzweiler. After being greeted 
by the President, the people were 
introduced to the President's mother, 
Mrs. C. A. Etzweiler of Columbia, 

The theme of the tea was a fashion 
show by the Clionian members. One 
fashion show was held at 3:30 P.M. 
and the second show was at 4:30 
P. M. Quiet rrrusic was provided by 
Miss Louise Light and Miss Beatrice 
Royer who beautifully rendered 
several vocal selections. She was ac- 
companied by Miss Edith Shanaman. 

Tea was poured by Miss Jane Hol- 
Jiday, an instructor in the conserva- 
tory and by Mrs. Bryon L. Harriman 
who is the wife of Professor Bryon L. 
Harriman, a psychology teacher in the 
college. Tiny tea sandwiches repre- 
senting fall leaves were served. Little 
cakes and mints were also served. 
Miss Phyllis Barnhart and Miss Jo 
Spangler also helped to serve during 
the tea. 

The room was decorated with 
beautiful bouquets of fall flowers and 
ivy. These decorations were present- 
ed to the club by Miss Ruth Ann 
Brown. Each guest was given a yel-

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 5, 1950 



The newest and possibly most important position on campus (As far as we 
students are concerned) was iniated this year with the appointment of Mr. 
William A. Hays as Dean of Students of Lebanon Valley College. This tall, 
blonde, gentleman whom many of you may have seen meandering around 
campus, may l>e found in his enormous office that was reconstructed out of 
room five. Dean Hays, an amiable, easy-to-meet bachelor has an impressive 
background that seems made to order for his work at L. V. C. He received 
his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Susquehanna University in 1945. He attend 
ed the summer session of the University of Pennsylvania and received his Mas- 
ter of Letters Degree from the University of Pittsburg in 1947. His Master 
of Arts Degree was received from Columbia University in 1949. Of his 
graduate credits, he completed 84 out of 90 at Columbia University. He 
holds a Professional Diploma in Director of Guidance and Counceling. He 
has held several prominent positions before coming to L. V. A few of Ihem 
are: psychologist for the Westinghouse Electric Company, psychologist at the 
University of Pittsburg, and also as a psychological assistant at Pennsylvania 
State College. He has been active in personnel work as Director of Personnel 
Services Division at Harrisburg; and as Student advisor at City College, New 
York City. He was Personnel Director of Hetzler and Zok Company, and 
was Senior Research Psychologist for the Pennsylvania State Employment 
Service. With this background it is only natural that Dean Hays should fill 
his position as Dean of Students to the "nth" degree. His capacity as Dean 
will be to supervise and coordinate all student personnel activities, including; 
admissions, orientation, student government, counciling, health and housing, 
placement, discipline, social and religious education and host of other activi- 
ties. . . In short, if it has to be done, the Dean will do it. 

Not only does Dean Hays have the necessary occupational background and 
experience for carrying out his duties, but his compatible personality, his 
attitudes and conception of methods and their employment will undoubtedly 
be a deciding factor in determining the degree of success that he will attain. 
As a disciplinarian, he does not "swing a big stick," but advocates the "fair 
deal" and human treatment at a strong basis for maintaining order. As a 
firm believer in student participation in student government, he advocates 
the democratic processes and the principles of a free people as the best way 
tot accomplish objectives. However, if necessary, he will undoubtedly take a 
firm stand on vital issues and assume the "iron hand in the velvet glove" 
atitude if certain factions come to a head. 

Dean Hays has more than a large task to accomplish, but with the coopera- 
tion of the entire student body and administrative officers backing him, he 
can be asured of complete success in his duties as Dean of Students of 
Lebanon Valley College.

Ricker's Dutchmen Dazzle 
Maryland Mounties by 39-0 

Lebanon Valley's Coach Ralph Ricker set off talent-loaded keg of gridiron 
dynamite on Staurday night under the lights in the Lebanon High School 
Stadium. From this explosion ensued an avalanche of touchdowns which 
eventually evolved in the burying of a weak Mt. St. Mary's College pigskin 
array 39-0 in the opener of the 1950 home season for the Flying Dutchmen. 
The visitors had very little to compare with the offensive might of the Blue 
and White and once Lou Sorrentino scored the first touchdown the boys from 
Emmitsburg, Maryland were done for the night. The Valley backs tore in 
and out and around the Mountaineer line in flamboyant fashion rolling up 
the one-sided result with thirty-seven players seeing action. The Mounties 
were battered down in every department and threatened only once through 
out the entire fracas. 

LVC's juggernaut ground out a total offense of 430 yards to the mere 129 
managed by the gentlemen from the South. Valley runners displayed their 
destructive power in the air as on the land, but the latter dominated the scene 
as 241 yards rushing were recorded for the Rickermen while Mt. St. Mary's 
group mustered but 36. It was a brilliant spectacle of scoring power that 
the Valley eleven "dished up" to their faithful, and "out" to the men of Coach 
John Law. 

Lou Sorrentino, a freshman quarteback, with the poise and football know- 
how that can usually be seen only in a veteran pigskin-er glittered beautifully 
for the Blue and White from Annville as he connected for eight out of 
eleven passes for a total of 146 yards and reeled off twelve yards of his own 
running to account for a good deal of the Valley offensive with his 158 yards 
gained. The Sharon Hill, Pa. whiz-kid fascinated the crowd with a show from 
'he start when he scored the first touchdown. He also showed well with a 
sensational heave in the second quarter which was hauled down even more 
spectacularly by Glenn Thomas as he clung to the ball between two MSMC 

'Dale Shellenberger, the nifty shifty lad from Red Lion ran very well 
scoring two touchdowns for the LVC combine. Shelly rolled up 48 yards 
Ashing and cracked the opponents line with all the speed and determination 
Possible. On his second touchdown the shifty lad stormed into the end zone as 
though he'd been shot from a howitzer and all but carried a stubborn Mt. 
^•Mary's linesman with him. Walt Shonosky, who lugs the leather with such 
Protection and care as though it were made of brittle porcelain, accounted 
to ^ yards °f tne Dutchman offense and also scored a touchdown. Dick 
'lusselman, another freshman back, came through in fine fashion reeling off 
some eye-opening dashes that accounted for 49 yards of the Dutchman of- 
ense. The entire Valley backfield looked great in the delivery of this thrash- 
n 8 to the Emmitsburgians, Ralph Gioradano, Joe Oxley, Don De Bennedett, 
otin Buffmoyer, Chuck Maston, and Sal La Bruzza, but the most breath-taking 
, Un of the evening was left to Ray Dakowski who dared away from encircling 
°st of tacklers and reversed to the oposite side of the field, jotting down 
n e , tu rf for a sizeable gain. Then he pulled off a " brother you ain't seen 

utnin' yet" as he scored a touchdown in a few following plays by faking at 
n e line and then jackrabbiting it out to the left side, scooting into pay dirt, 
sco ^ Dutchmen labored for every touchdown and none came as gifts. They 
tiln as tne result of the hard charging and running, and all around versa- 

<»y of the team itself. Every one did their job well and the victory was a 
csu 't of team work. 


LV 4n ger took the °P enin g kick °ff and raced it from the five to the 
two Buffomoyer came on and hit the line for five yards, Shelly picked up 
ton a c nd tben Buffy slammed through for nine more registering a first down.

I c mne intact by eating up nine more yards. Shellenberger followed, rack- 
a Sn P a first down on the Mount 30. Shelly carried for four more and after 
sorrentino ozone attempt was incomplete, Shellenberger gathered in the 
* l one and recorded another LVC first down on the Marylander's six.

M-Berg To Be Tough 
For Flying Dutchmen 

For the twenty-sixth time since 
1900 Lebanon Valley will meet Muh- 
lenburg College on the gridiron under 
the arcs this Saturday night in the 
beautiful Allentown High School 
Stadium. This will be a continuation 
of the series which saw the last game 
being played in 1942 when the Allen- 
town mules tripped the Flying Dutch- 
men 6-0. Muhlenburg holds an edge 
in the standings having won 13 to 
the Dutchman 11, while the 1921 con- 
test ended in a 21-21 tie. 

Muhlenburg's Head Coach is How- 
ard W. Baughman who replaced 
Floyd Schwartzwalder at the Allen- 
town institution which the latter ac- 
cepted the head coaching position at 
Syracuse. Baughman had a, success- 
ful high school coaching career in 
Ohio and several boys from Paines- 
ville, Ohio, one of the places where 
he coached are on the Mule team. 
Baughman, who was a three letter 
man at Kent State in Ohio, lost seven 
games in his first year at the helm of 
the Mules last season. 

Baughman's assistants are J. Louis 
Cardinal, another Kent State graduate, 
Thomas Triplett, who attended West- 
ern Kentucky, and F. Ernest Fellows, 
a product of Muhlenburg. 

As for the Muhlenburg team itself, 
by switching a couple of backs to cen- 
ter and guard, Coach Baughman could 
field a starting lineup of eleven letter- 
men. George England throwing the 
passes, Elmo Jackson, Harry Kreutz- 
berg and Ernie Wescoe carrying the 
ball, Fred Peifly and Al Rubbert on 
the ends and a couple of towering 
tackles in the persons of Captain 
Mysto Deitz and Fred Berman. 

'Bob Dikon is the only veteran 
guard on the squad while in addition 
to the above quartet, the Mules also 
have Bill Woodworth and Abby Ruy- 
ak as backfield lettermen of '49 on 
hand for '50. Non-lettermen from last 
year include a pair of ends, Al Wood- 
worth and Warren Reed, Frank Stef- 
kovich at center, Nick Yannuzzi at 
guard and fullback Dick Landis. 

Reinforceing these 16 upperclass- 
men from last year's squad the Mules 
have 21 hustling freshmen from last 
year's 1953 team moving up to varsity 
status. Pete Dolly from Camden and 
George Mills and Inky Ingold from 
Verona, N. J. are standouts among 
the new backfield men on the basis 
of their paly with Lou Cardinals 
freshman eleven last fall. 

Last season the Mules won but 
one game, tied one, and lost seven. 
The win was recorded over Lebanon 
Valley's arch rival, Albright, 21-7 and 
the team they tied were the Penguins 
of Youngstown College from Ohio. 
The teams defeating the Baughman- 
men Scranton, 12-7; Duquesne 14-7; 
Lafayette 35-21; Gettysburg 9-6; Dele- 
ware, 25-13; Lehigh, 22-20; and Buck- 
nell, 32-14. 

' The Mules opened their season on 
Saturday by downing Bucknell's Bis- 
ons 18-13. George England proved to 
be an ace passer for the winners and 
the Plainfield, N. J. lad might prove 
to be a thorn in the side of the Dutch- 

men. George is supposed to be a 
Muhlenberger from way back, since 
he was born in Muhlenberg Hospital 
in Plainfield. The other star of the 
Allentown aggregation is William 
"Elmo" Jackson, is the left half back 
who is probably the fastest man on 
the Mule team. Jackson is home 
grown and attended Allentown High 
where he played on the perennial 
powerful athletic teams of the 

This, then is the team that the 
Dutchmen will meet. Muhlenberg — 
the biggest game on our schedule. 
Let us all get behind our team in this 
one and cheer them on to a victory 
over the Mules. After the demon- 
stration they gave on Saturday night 
against Mt. St. Mary's we know the 
Flying Dutchmen are a clicking com- 
bination so, let's go down to Allen- 
town on Saturday night and yell for 
a "Mule kicking." 

Below is the record of the games 
through the years between Muhlen- 
berg and Lebanon Valley:

ACE Clarifies Confusion 
About Service Situation 

Some confusion has arisen regard- 
ing the action of Local Selective Ser- 
vice Boards in relation to college and 
university students. Students pur- 
suing full-time courses who receive 
their orders for induction while en- 
rolled in an institution of higher edu- 
cation and wish to postpone their 
entrance into the armed forces, should 
request postponement of induction, 
not deferment. Postponement for the 
academic year is mandatory upon the 
Local Board for all full-time students 
as the Selective Service Act of 1948 
states : 

Any person who, while satis- 
factorily pursuing a full-time course 
of instruction at a college, university, 
or similar institution of learning, is 
ordered to report for induction under 
this title, shall, upon the facts being 
presented to the local board, have his 
induction under this title postponed 
(a) until the end of such academic 
year or (b) until he ceases satis- 
factorily to pursue such course of 
instruction, whichever is the earlier. 


Operations Bulletin No. 1 was aim- 
ed primarily to provide for deferment 
of such students as received their 
"order to report for induction" be- 
tween August I, 1950 and the opening 
of the academic year. Some Local 
Boards have preferred to defer 
(Classification 2A) those students 
who meet the criteria of Operations 
Bulletin No. 1, and thus save reclassi- 
fication between now and the end of 
the academic year- 

On September 28, the problems 
arising because of confusion between 
postponement and deferment were dis- 
cussed with National Headquarters, 
Selective Service System. They gave 
assurance that a clarifying statement 
would be sent immediately to Local 

Institutions have two responsibili- 
ties: (1) to be certain that students 
know they should request postpone- 
ment; and .(2) to certify to Local 
Boards that the Individual is pursuing 
a full-time course and is making satis- 
factory progress in such course. If the 
Local Board is also deferring students 
who meet the criteria of Operations 
Bulletin I, then, and then only, should 
the institution certify also the student's 
standing in his class. 

Charles Gelbert, captain of the 
1927 Lebanon Valley College foot- 
ball team and former star infielder 
for the St. Louis Cardinals, is now 
coaching baseball at Lafayette. 

LVC Students Better 
"ACE" Exam Aver. 

Official figures released by the co- 
operative Test Division of the Edu- 
cational Testing Service, Princeton, 
New Jersey, show that the average of 
scores attained this year on the Ameri- 
can Council on Education Psycho- 
logical Examination by freshmen at 
Lebanon Valley College exceeds the 
average reported by 218 colleges 
"ACE," is a standard test of scholas- 
tic aptitude widely used by institu- 
tions of higher learning throughout 
the United States. 

Lebanon Valley College freshmen 
averaged higher not only than students 
at the 218 colleges as a whole but 
also higher than men and women at 
the junior colleges, teachers colleges, 
and four-year colleges which make 
up the total. 

Freshmen at Lebanon Valley have 
achieved progressively higher scores 
for three successive years. Such an 
impressive record clearly indicates 
that College has selected its students 
both carefully and well.

as Musselman and Shellenberger punched out a first down on the LV P ■ 
Sorrentino then cut loose with the pass of the game as he took all the time 
the world, sighted Thomas, then let go with an amazing heave that ux 
masterfully leaped up and caught between two opponents and dragged do 
for the first down on the MSMC 30. Sorrentino hit Fischer for the first dow

14. Shellenberger violated the MSM goal line again as he tore across . 
his second TD of the night. Buffamoyer accounted for the extra marker 
the Dutchmen led 26-0. 

After a session of punt exchanges the Mounties kicked from their 17 out 
Ray Dankowski who brought it back to the 46. The Dutchmen pushed to 
33 for a first and Musselman registered another as the period ended- ^ , 
rentino continued his devastating air performance reaching co-captain & 
Fischer for a first down on the four and from there Shonosky carried it ° v 

The PAT attempt by Buffamoyer was low. Jl 

The last touchdown of the evening came in the latter portion of the el 
ing chapter. A lamentable visiting kick got as far as the LVC 45 and V° { 
here the Dutchmen were in business again. Dankowski was in the drivers s 
now and Danny passed to Joe Oxley for a first down on the Mount 26. r x °, c 
this point Dankowski went into that awe-inspiring run of his which took 
spectators right out of their seats as he eluded a gang of would be grapP 1 ^ 
and reversed his running to the opposite of the field until he was downed . 
stumbling on the nine. An offside penalty moved the pigskin to the four a^ 
Giordano carried to the one. Dankowski starred again as he hit the center 
the line, suprising the opponent as he raced around the left end instead, 1 a 
the last TD of the night. Tom Quinn, who presented the fans with qfH e 
kicking toe, booted the extra point and that was the game at 39-0.

Cotton Division. He was elected presi- 
dent and general manager of the Rem-

Tug-of-War, Game, 
Show, and "L" Dance 
Fill Weekend Calendar 

Miss Cynthia Johnson, also named 
Pennsylvania Week Queen on the cam- 
pus, will reign over the varied Home- 
coming events to be held this weekend 
as the Homecoming Queen of Lebanon 
Valley College. As the beautiful monarch 
of the day Miss Johnson will figure in 
the half time ceremonies at the impor- 
tant football game between Albright and 
Lebanon Valley which will be held at 
2:00 P. M. on Saturday afternoon in the 
Lebanon High School Stadium. Miss 
Johnson will also preside over the an- 
nual L-Club Dance to be held the same 
evening in the Annville High School 

Miss Dorothy Elizabeth Witmer, a 
junior, was selected Maid-of-Honor to 
Queen Cynthia as part of the program 
for Homecoming. Miss Witmer is a mu- 
sic major and very active in me Conser- 
vatory. She is the daughter of Mr. and 
Mrs. Frank C. Witmer of 100 Linn 
Street, Harrisburg. 

Homecoming festivities will get off to 
a flying s l art on Thursday morning 
when the Lebanon Valley student body 
will honor the football team with a pep 
rally in front of North Hall. Saturday, 
however, will be the big\day of the week- 
end. \ 

At 9:00 A. M. the annual Freshman- 
Sophomore tug of war will take place 
on the banks of the Quittapahilia. Like 
ine Quit'apahiila, this event is a tradition 
at Lebanon Vaney and should the fresh- 
men win they win not oe required to 
iole.ate certain fiosh rules such as 
sealing dink and tie, carrying matches 
and otner such inciuentais. Last year tne 
freshman won the tug and these Frosh 
are this year's sophs, so a tough battle 
can be expected. Ihe event is won on a 
iwo out of three basis with teams alter- 
nating banks. 

From 10 to 12 A.M. tickets for the Al- 
oright game will go on saie in the office 
of the Director of Athletics. The tickets 
are $1.00 for aduits and $.50 for cnnd- 
.en. Lebanon Valley students will be ad- 
mitted upon presenting their student acti- 
vity tickets. The fall meeting of the 
~onege board of Trustees will be held 
at 10:30 A. M. with Dr. E. N. Funk- 
nouser presiding. Also at this time the 
powerful Lebanon Valley Girl's Field 
Hockey team will engage the Lionesses 
of Albright in a match on the new 
hockey field. The Alumni Luncheon will 
be held in North Hall 12:30 P. M. and 
this is free to all Alumni. 

For many the most important item on 
the day's agenda occurs in the Lebanon 
Stadium when the Flying Dutchmen take 
on their time-honored rivals, the Albright 
Red Lions. In the past these games have 
always proved excellent to view and 
this year should be no exception, taking 
cognizance of the fact that both squads 
are rather evenly matched. Following 
the game dinner will be served in the 
dining hall at 6:00 P. M. and the charge 
will be $.50 for the Alumni. 

This year, as usual, Wig and Buckle

We're Sorry But . 

La Vie is faced with a financial problem. We are alloted two dollars per student 
from the Activity Fund for the publication of this paper. With a student enrollment 
that is considerably reduced over that of last year, our position becomes more critical. 
Printing costs have soared to greatly increased. As our allotment amount re- 
mains constant and printing costs increase, the logical answer seems to be to cut down 
in the number of issues. We do not like this idea anymore than you do, but it seems 
to be the only answer to the problem. Under the revised publication schedule we are 
planning to give you an issue every other week, except during vacation and examina- 
tion periods. This will mean less issues, but we are restoring the five column larger 
size paper in an effort to give you a bigger and better La Vie. We sincerely hope that 
you can understand our position. 

The Editors 

The Unsung Workers of the 
Campus, our Cheerleaders! 

Do we realize how many hours these students spend preparing for our games? Rain 
or shine we casually accept them along the side lines to urge us on, win or lose. We 
expect a Pep Rally and rightly so, but do we stop to think who are the ones that pro- 
mote the idea? Check our cheerleaders with those of our opponents. I'll take ours 
any time! Wouldn't you? 

This fall they organized the Hollering Hundred. Our last home game showed a 
more responsive cheering section. Thanks, student body! Let's make it the Force- j 
ful Five Hundred! Let's get behind our teams with the Cheerleaders and give our j 
teams the cheering they deserve. 

How are our cheerleaders chosen? Do you know? Their Constitution sets 

up the stipulation that vacancies made by graduating seniors are to be filled by incom- 
ing Frosh. Those remaining on the squad observe all Frosh "trying out". A vote 
brings in the new members. Their laws also make it a requisite to attend all practices 
and home games. Members of the squad are: Dick Moore, head cheerleader and 
senior, Jeanne Hutchinson, junior, Lee Whiteman and Johnnie Walter, sophmore, 
Fran Shroyer and Darlene Moyer, freshmen. 

When you see the Blue and White Cheerleaders with their megaphones piling out 
of Jackie Smith's green Ford, you'll know the squad is present again to help energize 
our teams to victory How about getting hoarse with them! 







By Phil Hayes 

Dean Stonecipher has been chosen 
from the members of the faculty and 
administrative officers of Lebanon Valley 
as the second in a series of "PROF- 
ILES" to be presented by LA VIE. 

As Dean of the College, his duties are 
mainly academic, being related to both 
faculty and students. He advises students 
in regard to their curricular problems, 
such as choice of courses, student loads, 
and offers assistance to those who 
fall behind in their work. He is also re- 
sponsible for curriculum planning and 
revision. Another duty, particularly im- 
portant to so many of the young male 
students, is his acting as a go-between 
for students and their respective draft 

Born in the state of Indiana, and rear- 
ed in western Tennessee, Dean Stoneci- 
pher graduated from Vanderbilt Univer- 
sity in 1913 and received the Bachelor of 
Arts Degree. He received his Master of 
Arts Degree from that institution in 1914, 
and his Ph.D. in 1918. He is a member 

of Phi Beta Kappa, National Honorary 
Society. Dean Stonecipher also attended 
George Peabody College for Teachers at 
Nashville, Tennessee, while working on 
his requirements for his Ph.D. His grad- 
uate work was done in Greek and Indo- 
Iranian Philology with a minor in Latin 
and German. His thesis, titled "Graeco- 
Persian Names,' was published as a part 
of the Vanderbilt University oriental 

After coming to Lebanon Valley in 
1932 as a Professor of Latin, he was ap- 
pointed Dean of the College in 1936. As 
Latin is no longer on the curriculum of 
this college, the Dean instructs classes in 
Ancient European History and Scientific 

Through his untiring efforts to pave 
the highway to higher education, thru 
his conscientious decisions and unselfish 
support, he has won the respect and good 
will of everyone. As an adviser, as an 
educator and friend, Dean Stonecipher 
has proved to be more than Dean of the 

To the Class of '52 

I want to take this time to thank all those, in and out of the Junior Class, for the 
splendid job they did in presenting The Junior Variety Show. Those of you who were 
in it gave us your whole hearted cooperation, some of the rest of you were not in- 
terested enough to even support it. Our Class numbers approximately 144. Compare 
this to the 25 or so members participating in Friday's program and you can see the 
cause of this letter. 

The program was the work of a few. As it was, it was a success, but if we had 
had more cooperation from you, we could really have had something terrific. We 
need more class spirit, it's your class as well as the class of the few. 

How can you help? This is easy: (1) come to class meetings the first Thursday 
of the month in Philo Hall, (2) participate in our activities, (3) and pay your Class 
dues. Be an Active Junior

rfeap Big News! 

"Will the freshmen wear dinks next week.-'" The answer will come this Saturday 
orn ing when the freshmen meet the sophomores in the Annual Tug-of-War over 
JJ e "Quittie." The Sophomore class had its team organized in the first week of school. 
They have been in training since. The total weight of the Sophomore team is 1800 
oounds. The freshmen team was just organized last week under the direction of the 
ewly elected class officers. Come out early and see all the fun.... The really big news 
°f the week is concerned with the Annual Homecoming. Cynthia Johnson, a pretty 
lass of *51 class> was cnosen Mis; s Lebanon Valley for Pennsylvania Week.' She will 
reside at the festivities for Home Coming. Dotty Witmer who was runner up will 
also be present for the "big doings." One of the big events will be the classic game 
between LVC and Albright. Everyone is looking forward to one of the best games 
of the year... The two one act-plays to be presented Saturday Night are really "shap- 
ing U P-" A lot of new talent wil1 make debuts on th2 L - V. stage that night. Bob Kreig 
a nd George Curfman are appearing in both plays. 

This and That 

Last week was the big week for the freshmen-contests, "give away," decorated 
jalopies and banners were the high lights of the "hot" freshmen presidential cam- 
a ign... Congratulations to New Officers - Louis Sorrentino (No. 21), president, won 
the election by a land slide, Cal Haverstock is the new vice-president.Gail Edgar (the 
girl with the "eyes") for secretary and Jack Ervin will handle the "purse strings" 
{or '54 class.. .Bob Glock is now "employed"' at "Hot Dog Franks"... Hear that 
Dean Cooper is becoming attached to that little dog of hers... What some girls won't 
do for football players! "Sonny" (Miss Jiggerboard of 1950) of Bardwell is now open- 
ing doors for all football players... Did you write a letter this week? This is National 
Letter writing week. One fellow in the dorm wrote eight letters in one day. I under- 
stand he did not send them all to one girl, though. Ever listen to the radio on Saturday 
mornings? LA VIE is sponsoring a 15 minute broadcast every Saturday morning at 
10:00 A.M. over WLBR. George DeLong and Bob Geyer have been commentators... 

With the Sportsmen 

For the height of embarassment you should have seen the kisser of the character 
who was continually riding Ray Dankowski throughout the Moravian game... He 
nearly flipped out when he was informed that the lady seated directly behind him 
him was none other than Ray's mother... She came down to see Ray perform... and 
he certainly did... Understand the most popular boy in the men's dorm possesss the 
initials C. B... What's this we hear about somebody dragging somebody into the new 
gym the other evening?... We're sure you won't obstruct the workmen is you viewed 
the interior during the day .. Joe Hahn is the number one crystal gazer on campus as 
of last week's football weekend. Prof. McKlveen is slowly but surely gaining a Rep 
of telling the rarest stories on campus. His classes are either howling with laughter or 
deliberating on some complicated philosophy. Who knows maybe they'll be quoting 
Edwards or Shonosky in a few years instead of Froebel and Dewey. 

Talent Talk 

Talent, Talent, Talent. The juniors presented one of the best talent shows "to 
hit" L. V. Campus in many a "moon" last Friday nite. What a master of ceremonies 
Jim Zangrilli acted as M. C. and did a good routine on the origin of the rumba, conga, 
and jitterbug. Delores Zarger presented "I am Falling in Love with Somebody" and 
"A Song in My Heart." Red Strauss and his Corn Huskers gave out with some mount- 
ain music. Their imitation of Jack Haines was tops. But where was "Poison Ivy"? 
Jane Lutz brought forth the ever popular "Thinking of You" and "Nevertheless." 
Cooper Smith had quite a time putting out that fire. The Junior Class Trio sang "All 
The Things You Are." Tenor Gene Fisher gave his rendition of "the Desert Song" 
and "Give Me the Open Road." Just where did all those ahs and sighs come from? 
Maybe Sheriden Hall has formed a fan club. Armen Banklian (Mr. Belvidere) proved 
his acting ability again. His part as a local movie pest was good. 

The surprise of the evening was Mardia Melroy's ditty of "Henry the Eighth." 
Last on the p rogram was the chorus line finale... They weren't exactly the "Rockettes" 
but - not bad! Poor Ed Tesnar couldn't "get any" of Zangrilli jokes, and he's presi- 
dent of the class, too... Why do we have so many "GHEWS" on campus this year? 
You're missing lots of fun! 

Dizzy Doings 

Joanne Budd has the "cutting" fever, Beware. Just because she cuts everyones 
hair in West Hall, she goes around everywhere on campus with a pair of s:issors and 
raves, "I see an end!"... Dick Hawk's lullaby certainly affected the workmen last 
week. Anything for morale!... Lenny Canper studies so hard that the other night he 
tied a towel around his head so his brains wouldn't fly out. If that's his answer to 
being on the Dean's List, we're buying a share in Cannon Towels... Armen Banklian 
seems to be a one man health department. If you want to know what we mean, just 
ask the Pennway waitresses... Peg Bower read her poem on the stages of love to a 
group of students the other day in the ad building Does the poem reflect the author's 
f eelings?... See those Indians on campus last week? John Ford should hear about this... 
Those walking ham sandwiches were something! Where were the Astoria specials?... 
Those Kalo men on "Ladies Day" could have entered a beauty contest and walked 
away with the prizes... Philo pledgees even went to see Gov. Duff.. .Remark of the week 
was heard at the Junior Class Dance on Friday night. Betty Cristwell inquired of 
Mel Hostetter, "How late can you stay out tonight?" Oh, brother!...! understand that 
that Bing's gold-fish makes too much noise in North Hall. It effects her room-mate's 
sleeping. What happens doing quiet hour?.. Julie Thatcher got such a "kick" out of 
Zangrilli's joke about the wife's accident... that is after five minutes of trying to figure 
it all out. 

Round About 

These wonderful Sunday afternoons certainly do something to people. A certain 
blonde Spanish student (one o'clock section) spends Sunday afternoon watching TV 
jnstead of doing all those translations. Then there are those that head for the hills, 
deluding Bill and Joyce. Lucie Portier finds that riding in convertibles is "all right"... 
fere's a new organization being formed on campus. It held its preliminary meeting 
last week. It is going to be an FTA chapter on campus... I dropped in on the rehearsals 
of Kind Lady, The Philo-Clio play to be presented on Nov. 17. Fay Hall has such a 
hard time remembering that she only has on I. Q. of 70. Gloria Dressier is even worse. 
bll e plays the part of Ada who has an I. Q. of 60. Looks as if Philo-Clio has a hit 
° n their hands. 

1 Pfedict... 

a come-back of Woody Herman! Hear his recording of "Rhapsody in Wood"/ 
a freshmen victory over the sophs, in the tug-of-war! 
that Wilson Shearer will made a "hurried" trip to Penn State soon! 
that Julie Thatcher will do wonders in Kind Lady 
that there will be more square dancing on the campus soon! 
that the A.B. affair (or was it the E.B.?) of North Hall will be solved within the 
next few weeks.

ence Club looked about and said, 
•'Where did they all come from?" Now 
is the time for all good men to come 
to the aid of their party, must have been 
the thought of the day when the second 
meeting was called to order Thursday, 
October 19, at 4:00, by the president pro 
tem, for forty-seven students presented 
themselves as prospective members. They 
were greeted officially by Mr. Moller, 
who outlined for them the activities and 
purposes of the club. Stressing partici- 
pation in annual Inter-Collegiate Con- 
ference on Government, Mr. Moller said, 
"Your copy of Robert's Rules of Order 
will be your Bible. Ability in parlia- 
mentary procedure is the means toward 
the end, the end being use of this ability 
in the sessions at ICG. But the club aims 
to develop this parliamenatry ability in 
a surrounding of good fellowship and 
mutual growth." Continued Mr. Moller, 
"and frequent social meetings will be held 
to foster and promote such fellowship." 
He closed his opening remarks to the 
fledglings with an expression of hope that 
all those present would, by their presence 
at meetings and earnest labor, show the 
spirit and interest which has been mani- 
fest in the organization in the past, and 
develop into active participants, that is, 
become true "vultures." 

Maud P. Laughlin, Keeper of the Flag, 
addressed the group on the history of the 
club flag, which is displayed at all meet- 
ings. In presenting this topic, she cx- 
j plained why the relic holds such a posi- 
tion of esteem and reverence in the opin- 
ion of club members. 

Following an exhibition of parliament- 
ary practices, which bordered on involv- 
ing the whole group in an incendiary 
discussion of voting procedure, the club 
members briefly debated a constructive 
resolution concerning the physical facili- 
ties of the college. 

After a Committee on Constitutional 
Revision received some pointed suggest- 
ions from the chair, the meeting was ad- 
journed. Former members then held a 
caucus concerning the progress and sus- 
tainment of the membership drive. 

Dr. Miller Speaks

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, acting presi- 
dent of Lebanon Valley College and the 
president of the Lebanon County His- 
torical Society, spoke on Pennsylvania 
Week at a union service of the churches 
of Shippensburg held in the Evangelical 
United Brethren Church, October 15. 

This union service of the Shippensburg 
churches began a week of observation of

Life Work Recruits 
Sponsor Activities 

The Life Work Recruits started anoth- 
er full year with a "short" business meet- 
ing on October 4. Previously, a hike and 
picnic had been given to welcome all 
new members into the organization. 

Planned events include talks on vari- 
ous subjects by noted speakers, deputa- 
tions, visits to the Old People's Home at 
Avon and Children's Hospital at Eliza- 
bethtown and distribution of copies of 
the Upper Room to students. Dr. A. H. 
M. Stonecipher gave the first of the 
scheduled talks on "Worship" on Octo- 
ber 17. He told about methods of public 
worship in the past and present. 

The Life Work Recruits are also spon- 
soring a thirty minute service of medita- 
tion and inspiration at the college church 
every Thursday morning at 11:30. All 
students are invited to attend these ser-

will be made by February 1, with the 
consent of the regional directors. Febru- 
ary 1 was also made the deadline for 
schools in the State to pay their mem- 
be ship dues. 

The Lebanon Valley representatives 
emerged from the three-hour long meet- 
ing a bit tired, but anxious for the hustle 
and bustle that accompanies prepara- 
tions for and participation in the annual 
state-wide conference. 

Lebanon Valley's Lou Sorrentino com- 
pleted 4 passes against Muhlenberg this 
year, three of them scoring, for a total 
of 126 yards. 

Chem Club Meets 
Plans Activities 

The chemistry club held its firs' meet- 
ing of the year on Tuesday, October 10, 
1950, at the home of Dr. Andrew Ben- 
der. The policies and future activities 
of the organization were discussed by 
the president, Robert Miller, after which 
the Faculty members of the department 
presented short talks on the following 
subjects: Professor George T. Kerr, "Tri- 
bulations of a New Faculty Member;" 
Mr. Lewis W. Bowman, "Membership in 
me A.C.S.;" Dr. Andrew Bender, 'A.C.S. 
Accreditation of L.V.C.;" and Dr. Ed- 
ward Neidig, "Research at L.V.C." 

The meeting was concluded with the 
serving of refreshments. 

Thirty-Five Pledges 
Initiated By Kalo 

On last Thursday, Kalo held formal 
nidations for its thirty-five new mem- 
bers. The newly organized week and a 
lalf initiation period, planned and cap- 
ained by Guy Euston as head of the 
ommittee on Initiations, was met with 
ull approval by all members and will 
)e used in all future inductions. It was 
he concensus that the more rigorous the 
initiation the more conscientious will the 
nembers be. 

An innovation on this campus in re- 
gard to the four societies has been plan- 
led for the first of December. Two dele- 
gates from each society will meet in the 
near future to decide in what form the 
Social shall be. 

It was also voted at that meeting that 
the Kalo Formal will be held in the New 
Brunswick Hotel Ballroom on March 3rd 
| of next year.

Miss Dunkle Resumes 
Work At Library 

Miss Anna B. Dunkle, one of the li- 
brarians on this campus, attended the 
University of Wisconsin from September 
1949, until August 1950, where she re- 
ceived her masters degree in English in 
June 1950. 

During her stay there, Miss Dunkle 
acted as "House Fellow" in one of the 
dormitories. Miss Dunkle stated that 
she enjoyed this work and her stay at 
the University of Wisconsin very much. 

The University of Wisconsin has one 
of the finest and largest student unions 
in the country. The Wisconsin players 
put on many interesting plays for the en- 
joyment of the students. 

During the winter, Miss Dunkle had a 
part time job on a German Magazine !

SCA Conference 
At Downingtown 

Joyce Hammock, Sara Latsha, Maxine 
Garvin, Glenn Dietrich, and Martin 
Trostle represented the S.C.A. at the 
Fall Area Conference of Areas I and II 
of the Student Christian Movement of 
the Middle Atlantic Region of which our 
SCA is a part. This intercollegiate con- 
ference was held at Camp Hilltop, 
Downingtown, Pa., October 6-8. The 
conference was attended by more than 
fifty students representing fifteen colleges 
throughout Eastern Pennsylvania and 
New Jersey. 

The theme, "What Does God Require 
of Us In the University?" was excellently 
presented by the Rev. Mr. Ernest A. 
deBordenave, rector of Christ Church in 
Phila. Discussion groups, seminars, re- 
creation, worship, and the opportunity to 
make new friends and to renew the old 
friendships made it an outstanding week- 

During the past summer, other stu- 
dents attended numerous intercollegiate 
conferences in relation to the S.C.A. 
Joyce Hammock, Diane Randolph, Will- 
iam Miller, and Martin Trostie attended 
Camp Micheaux for a Leadership Camp

Phi Lambda Sigma 
Announces Plans 

Now that rush week is past and initia- 
tion is over, the societies on campus are 
entering upon the year's activties with 
full force, Phi Lambda Sigma being no 
exception. Its ranks increased by sixteen 
worthy new members, following both a 
physical and formal initiation, Philo is 
ready to carry on a program, unpreced- 
ented in recent years . Particularly en- 
couraging to the society is the unusual 
willingness on the part of members to 
volunteer service and take an active part 
in various functions. This kind of spirit, 
if at all indicative of future events, will 
certainly set the pattern for other cam- 
pus societies and will bring success in 
all of Philo's endeavors. 

The first major society event this fall 
will be the Philo-Clio play, Kind Lady, 
starring Julia Thatcher and Charles Ka- 
gey, to be presented on Friday evening, 
November 17th. As an opener for the 
1950-51 season, Philo-Clio couldn't have 
chosen a more appropriate drama, since 
it is something new and different in the 
way of plays at Lebanon Valley. Under 
the able direction of Professor Gilbert 
McKlveen, Kind Lady should take the 
campus by storm. 

On the following evening, November 
18th, Philo-Clio will again serve as host 
and provide the entertainment. Definite 
plans are now being drawn. This time, 
however, there will be bigger and better 
arrangements to accommodate everyone 
who attends. 

Party Politics Fail As 
Freshmen Split Ticket 

The freshman class of Lebanon Valley 
College has announced the election of 
its class officers. 

Lou Sorrentino, varsity quarterback 
for the Dutchmen, was elected class pres-

Campus Chest Drive 
To Open On Oct. 18 

The Campus Chest Drive will open 
October 31 and will continue until the 
beginning of Thanksgiving Vacation on 
November 22. The Campus Chest, un- 
der the direction of the Student Christian 
Association, will be a newcomer to L.V. 
C. campus this year. The numerous 
drives held in past years for various 
worthy causes wil be unified into one 
main drive. The funds contributed will 
be distributed among organizations and 
agencies such as the World student Ser- 
vice Fund, the Red Cross, the Heart 
Fund, the Salvation Army, our own D.P. 
fund, and for the support of a mission- 
ary student here on our campus next 

The Campus Chest Committee, which 
is headed by Earl Redding and "Peg" 
Bower, has set as the goal one dollar 
per student per semester. Pledge cards 
will be made available to all students in 
chapel on October 31, and will be con- 
tacted in the future in reference to their 
contribution by a member of the 60- 
member contact committee. 

"This is Their Story," a movie pro- 
duced by UNESCO in cooperation with 
the World Student Service Fund, was 
shown Wednesday evening at Fellowship 
Hour to provide some of the background ! 
information as to why it is important to 
give to student relief. The County Fair, 
to be held November 3, will be another 
means of raising funds for the Campus 

The support of every student at LVC 
is asked in reaching the goal of $1,000. 
This is an opportunity to aid those who 
ask for help. 

In choosing Kind Lady as their play 
for this season, the Philo-Clio societies 
nave switched from the comedy of last 
year's "Hay Fever" to drama. The di- 
rector, Professor McKleveen, who also 
coached "Hay Fever," states, "Having 
had a limited experience, mostly with 
comedies, it is difficult to indicate one's 
reaction in working with a play of such 
an unusual nature as the play Kind 
Lady. Our reactions can possibly be best 
measured when the final curtain rings 
down." Continuing with the discussion of 
the play, he described it as "a drama of 

an entirely different nature the play 

if correctly interpreted — creates a high 
moment of suspense, building up thru 
the play and climaxing at its conclusion." 
the play and climaxing at its conclusion.,, 

Professor McKleveen believes that the 
play is well cast and feels that the cast 
is putting forth an effort to produce 
something of which the Philo-Clio so- 
cieties will be justly proud. 

Julia Thatcher, who portrays the title 
role of Kind Lady, or Mary Herries, ex- 
pressed sincere enthusiasm about both the 
play, Kind Lady, and her role. She furth- 
er states, "I think the change from com- 
edy to drama is a refreshing one and that 
the play chosen gives the cast an excellent 
opportunity to use their acting ability." 


(Continued from page 1) 

Club will take an active part in Home- 
coming exercises by presenting two one- 
act plays on Saturday night in Engle 
Hall. One of the plays is a modern work 
entitled Fantasy on an Empty Stage. The 
cast for this consists of Geraldine Ni- 
chols, John Mohan, Robert Zimmerman, 
George Curfman, John Heck, and Ro- 
bert Krieg. The other play is an old- 
fashioned melodrama, villain included, 
entitled Saved From the Fate of Her 
Sister. The thespians for this dramatic 
venture include Francene Moyer, and 
Robert Zimmerman. The directors of 
these plays are Julia Thatcher and Lois 

The evening will be climaxed with the 
Annual Homecoming Dance sponsored 
by the L-Club in the High School Gym. 
Guy Euston is chairman of this affair. 
Tickets may be purchased from any 
L-Club member at $.75 per or $1.50 a

Charles Kagey, president of the Soph- 
omore class, portrays Henry Abbott in 
this production. Mr. Kagey's only com- 
ment concerning the play was, "It's going 
to be good because it's entirely different 
from anything given on the Lebanon 
the Wig and Buckle production of "The 
Valley stage recently." He appeared in 
Hasty Heart in the character role of 
the doctor. Previous to this he has been 
connected with the U. S. O. productions 
and has directed plays in his neighbor- 
hood in Washington, D. C. He enjoys 
his role as Henry Abbott because it 
gives him the opportunity for character 

Florence Dunkelberger, who plays 
the part of Lucy Weston, is also enthu- 
siastic about the play, Kind Lady. Al- 
though her personal preferences tend 
toward comedy, Miss Dunkelberger 
states, "I believe Kind Lady is a won- 
derful play and will be one of the hits 
of the Lebanon Valley campus.

Valley Gridders Seek 4th Straight Win Of Campaign 

pankowski Romps 93 Yds. 
In 14-8 Moravian Trumph 

Fischer Scores On 
Sorrentino Aerial 

Tvvo amazing touchdown performan- 
ces saved Lebanon Valley from suffering 

defeat at the hands of a more potent 
than expected pack of Moravian Col- 
lege Greyhounds on Saturday afternoon 
a t Moravian Field in Bethlehem. The 
Flying Dutchmen outlasted the home 
squad 14-8 in their second visit to the 
Lehigh Valley this season. Although the 
glue and White won by a margin of one 
touchdown, they did not possess the 
spirit and finesse which gave them their 
triumph over highly regarded Muhlen- 
berg. It seemed to be a different team 
out there on Moravian Field and had 
the Valley been unable to pull itself to- 
gether eventually, Moravian's vision of 
a 15-14 triumph for themselves could 
have been a reality. The Valleyites were 
definitely on the sluggish side and didn't 
flash that zip and go against an oppo- 
nent which had lost to Albright, Hof- 
stra, and Upsala. We must admit that 
for awhile we thought that Lehigh 
wasn't the only Bethlehem team pulling 
a stunning upset on Saturday. 

Coach Ralph Ricker's charges opened 
the scoring mid-way in the first period 
with a pass play that left the spectators 
gaping with astonishment upon its com- 
pletion. Freshman quarterback Lou Sor- 
rentino faded back to his own 33-yard 
line and let go with a 32-yard heave 
which was spectacularly hauled down by 
co-captain Bob Fischer amidst several 
Moravian safetymen. Fischer kept his 
legs churning right into the end zone 
and the Valley had a 7-0 lead upon Tom 
Quinn's successful booting of the bonus 

Moravian's Greyhounds retaliated in 
the same period with a sustained 68-yard 
drive that ended in a touchdown on a ten 
yard pass from Don Deibert to Joe 
Gerenscer. Gerenscer, who was one of 
the better Moravian backs, missed the 
extra point as it was kicked wide of the 

Tom Quinn set up what possibly could 
have been a LV touchdown late in the 
second period when he recovered a Mo- 
ravian fumble on the Greyhound 35- 
yard line. Sorrentino attempted the air 
waves again and when he couldn't sight 
a possible receiver, tore around end for 
twenty yards to the homester's 15. Walt 
Shonosky, who played a fine game at 
fullback all afternoon, carried to the 7 
on two plays and it looked as though the 
Valley would push across a six-pointer. 
Moravian's line however, had different 
ideas and the hefty Greyhounds proved 
stubborn enough to gain possession of 
the oval on downs on their own 4. 
The third quarter saw both teams 
mess up when in scoring position and 
this factor set the stage for Lebanon 
Valley's winning touchdown. The Grey- 
hounds drove into Valley territory and 
^tempted to score via the ozone route. 
Their first aerial disastrously backfired 
as Ray Dankowski, playing defensive 
quarterback, intercepted the floating 
^Phere on his own 7. Moravian's Grey- 
hound mascot, Ogo II, had very little on 
Da "ny at this point of the game, as Ray 
" e arly sent the Valley stands into a riot 
? racing 93 yards down the green 
r °ugh the entire Greyhound team for a 
°Uchdown with the help of some excel- 
e "t blocking; reminding Valley faithful 
of Hank DiJohnson's 102-yard gallop 
gainst the same school last year. Tom 
^ Uln n, the sensational West Virginian 
Played his usual wonderful game, 
^counted for the extra point with a 
plac e kick. 

to quell the threat. The Greyhounds 
however, were not to be denied a couple 
of points as they picked up a safety when 
Sorrentino attempted to punt the LV 
eleven out of a predicament deep in 
Dutchman territory. With the pass from 
center high, Carl Case, Moravian end, 
found ample time to break in and block 
the kick. The ball flew out of the end 
zone and that ended scoring for the day. 

Guard Ed Tesnar set the Flying Dutch- 
men in another scoring position when he 
beautifully intercepted a Moravian pass 
with a one-hand grab for the porkhide 
on the Greyhound 34. Dale Shellenber- 
ger, who had a tough time breaking 
loose during the day, along with Shon- 
osky, alternated on pitch-outs to move 
the ball to the 2 where the game ended 
as Walt was brought down on the last 
play after attempting a sweep of left 

In conclusion, the play of the Dutch- 
men made the Moravian aggregation look 
better and one glance at the statistics 
will prove what a difficult time the 
Dutchmen had in subduing the Grey- 
hounds. The contest saw Moravian suffer 
its fourth straight loss.

Smith's Dutch girls drive down the field 
taking the Penn Hall girls off guard. In 
the second minute of the game Jeanne 
Hutchinson, center forward, pushed a 
hard hit into the goal, opening the Val- 
ley's scoring spree. Mickey Begg, center 
forward, picked up a hard hit from Peg 
Bower, fullback, and on a surprise drib- 
ble put the ball across the line to bring 
the score to 2-0. Continuing the Valley's 
offensive playing, Jean Garvench, inner, 
chalked up the third goal. With a few 
minutes to play in the first half, Jeanne 
Hutchinson scored again to make the to- 
tal of four Valley goals. 

In the second half the Dutchgirls 
again broke through the Penn Hall's de- 
fense when Helen MacFarland, inner, 
chalked up the last Valley tally. 

To date, this season, the Dutchgirls 
have kept their opponents scoreless, but 
have come through with a total of 9 tal- 
lies on their side of the score board. 

On Saturday morning, Coach Jackie 
Smith's girls welcome back the Alumni 
on the annual homecoming day when 
at 10 o'clock they cross sticks with Al- 
bright College on the Valley's field.

Flying Dutchmen Face 
Rival Albright At Lebanon 

One of the oldest collegiate football rivalries in Pennsylvania will be renewed 
in Lebanon Stadium on Saturday afternoon at 2:00 P. M. when Albright College's 
gridiron forces invade the premises to engage Coach Ralph Ricker's Flying Dutch- 
men in the thirtieth fray of the series which began back in 1890 when Lebanon 
Valley won the first contest between the two schools, 10-3. Albright did not vic- 
timize the Dutchmen until 1913 when they succeeded in downing the Blue and 
White 20-7 and wasn't triumphant again until 1929 when they began a four year 
victory skein over the Annville collegians. The largest margin of victory registered 
in this rivalry was marked up in 1919 when the Dutchmen ripped the Lions 48-0. 
This also marked the highest total of points scored by either team besides the 41-0 
job LV turned in in 1925 and the 40-20 conquest the Red Lions made in 1939. Al- 
bright will have added incentive to win on Saturday afternoon for not only are the 
Roaring Lions out to avenge the 26-13 tail-twisting they were administered by the 
Blue and White last year but will also attempt to cut down the victory bulge the 
Lebanon Valley squads have amassed over them in the series. Lebanon Valley leads 
in the standings, having won 15 times while Albright has won 12. Two games ended 

in 6-6 stalemates. 

Not only will they strive to accom- 
plish the above mentioned but the visi- 
tors will also be looking for their third 
victory of the current campaign. Thus 
far the boys of Coach Eddie Gulian 
have defeated Moravian 20-12 and ran 
roughshod over Adelphi 45-6. Their loss- 
es were inflicted by a superior Temple 
pigskin array 32-6; the Cadets of Penn- 
sylvania Military College, 12-7; and last 
Saturday Franklin & Marshall capitalized 
on two Lion fumbles for a 14-0 win. 
Common opponents therefore have been 
Moravian and F&M with the compara- 
tive results presenting the picture that 
both teams are rather equally matched. 
Valley dropped the Greyhounds 14-8 and 
lost to the Diplomats 13-7, however the 
Dutchman upset of Muhlenberg and the 
fact that they have recorded three 
straight victories should install them as 
slight favorites over their ancient rivals. 
In a rivalry such as this however, what 
good are comparative scores. Last year 
for example, Gettysburg shot the Dutch- 
men 33-14 while Albright held the for- 
mer at 13-13. Lincoln on the other hand 
nipped the Lions 14-12 and when said 
Lincoln came to Lebanon, Andy Kerr's 
eleven all but ran them out of the sta- 
dium 49-0. In the final analysis the 
Dutchmen did beat the Lions. There- 
fore, look for a rough and tough battle 
on Saturday afternoon with plenty of 
spirit and pigskin pyrotechnics. 


The guiding light, so to speak, of the 
Albright crew is Head Coach Edward 
A. Gulian who is at the helm of the 
Red and White for the second year. 
Prior to taking over the coaching reins 
of the Roaring Lions, Gulian was on the 
coaching family at Lafayette College. A 
graduate of Norristown High School, he 
received his B. S. degree at Gettysburg 
College where for three successive sea- 
sons he won varsity letters in football, 
basketball, and baseball, serving as cap- 
tain of the Bullets' gridiron team in 1930. 
He began his coaching career at Phoenix- 
ville and Ashland High Schools during 
which time he also earned his masters 

degree in physical education at Columbia 
University. In 1934 he entered the col- 
lege mentoring business at near-by Ship- 
pensburg State Teachers College where 
he remained for eight years. During 
World War II, he accepted a naval com- 
mission and spent 35 months in the ser- 
vice as a physical education instructor 
being assigned variously to the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, the University 
of Georgia, Great Lakes and San Fran- 
cisco. In his first campaign at Albright, 
Eddie won 2, lost 6, and tied 1. 

A newcomer to the staff is Rober 
Hicks who graduated from Penn State 
last February where he played three 
years of varsity football and co-captained 
the 1949 grid team. Hicks replaces Lloyd 
Parsons who is on duty with the Navy. 
To round out the coaching squad is Ha- 
rold Yentsch, an ex-Lion who is back 
with his Alma Mater coaching the guards 
and tackles. 

Saturday's game will have both teams 
employing the platoon system. Despite 
the three reverses, Coach Gulian has 
been pleased with the play of the offen- 
sive unit. Gulian also plans a brush up 
on his pass defense for he expects the 
Valley to fill the air with aerials come 
Saturday. As for individuals on the Al- 
bright squad, George Rankin a 205 
pound fullback from Cranford, N. J. is 
particularly adept at smashing through 
opposing lines. John Sudol, another New 
Jersey product, from East Rutherford, is 
the long distance punter who put F&M 
back on its heels several times last 

As for the Flying Dutchmen, Coach 
Ricker is a little concerned with the 
passing attack of his LVC combine which 
did not function too well against an alert 
Moravian defense last week. Emphasis in 
practice this week has been on improv- 
ing protection for the passer. Ricker is 
also striving to polish up the inside run- 
ning game of the Dutchmen. Ricker will 
probably start the same teams with a few 
adjustments in the line a possibility. The

Ten L.V.C. Seniors 
Accepted On '50 Who's 
yjho in Amer. Colleges 

The following students were accepted 
from Lebanon Valley College this year 
for recognition in the 1950-51 Edition of 
Who's Who Among Students in Amer- 
ican Universities and Colleges: Margaret 
govver, Ruth Ann Brown, Jay Flocken, 
pierce Getz, Louise Light, Barbara Metz- 
ger, Robert Milelr, Ann Shroyer, Martin 
Trostle, and Bruce Wiser. 

This publication is the official annual 
directory of distinguished students select- 
ed from colleges and universities 
throughout America. 

Recognition by Who's Who Among 
Students in American Universities and 
Colleges means that the student was, 
first, officially recommended from the 
university or college he attends and, 
then, accepted by the organization. Nom- 
inations may be submitted annually by 
four-year degree-granting institutions. 
College juniors, seniors nad students en- 
rolled in graduate courses are eligible for 
nomination. Selection of nominees is 
conducted by campus committees and us- 
ually involves student-faculty-administra- 
tive participation. Nominations must be 
signed by a member of the faculty or ad- 
ministration or by another staff member 
designated to verify nominations and re- 
lated matters for the college. Methods 
and committee members remain anony- 
mous unless released by local campus 
committees. Nominating committees are 
requested to consider the student's schol- 
arship, his leadership and cooperation in 
education and extracurricular activities, 
his general citizenship, and his promise 
of future usefulness. There is no compe- 
tition among the various institutions sub- 
mitting nominations, as their curricula 
and extracurricular programs differ too 
greatly to permit accurate compairson; 
each institution participating is assigned 
a separate quota large enough to give a 
well-rounded representation of the stu- 
dent body, small enough to confine nom- 
inations to an exeptional group of stu- 
dents, and based upon current enroll- 
ment. Students who have been accepted 
for recognition are notified directly by 
Mho's Who Among Students in Amer- 
ican Universities and Colleges and are 
required to submit their own biograph- 
ical material. The entire school year is 
required ot compile and print the publi- 
cation, each new edition usually being 
released during the following summer. 

Each student who becomes a member 
receives, without cost: a certificate of rec- 
ognition awarded by the organization 
a nd presenetd at the school; recognition 
m the annual publication for the year 
during which he was selected in the form 
of a writeup of his college and personal 
record and a listing in the Index under 
toe college from which he was nomi- 
na ted; benefits of the Students Placement 
Service provided by the organization

College FTA Chapt er 
Organizes and 
Elects Officers 

The Gossard Chapter of the Future 
Teachers of America of Lebanon Valley 
College held its first meeting Tuesday 
November 7, at 8:30 P. M., in Washing- 
ton Hall. Professor McKleeven, profess- 
or of education, is the adviser of this 
newly formed organization on campus. 

The organization of the Future Teach- 
ers of America is based upon the execu- 
tive council. This council consists of the 
officers of the club, a member at large, 
and the heads of the social, program, 
and publicity committees. The officers 
of the F.T.A. are: President, Fred Sam- 
ple; Vice-President, Charles Swingholm; 
Corresponding Secretary, Ray Heverling; 
Recording Secretary, Elsie The 
member?at-large is Wilson Shearer and 
Nancy Myers, John Geisey, and Dale 
Shellenberger head the social, program 
and publicity committees respectively. 

The executive council will meet Mon- 
day, November 20, at 7:30 P. M., at 
Professor McKleeven's home and the en- 
tire membership will meet December 5, 
at 7:30 P. M., in Washington Hall. 

Pol. Science Club 
Appoints 1950 
Committee Leaders 

Meeting for the third time this semes- 
ter on November 9, the Political Science 
Club set into motion the wheels that will 
carry it through much of the year of ac- 
tivities. President pro tem Robert Moller 
announced the appointment of Mickey 
Begg as Social Committee Chairman, and 
Jim Pacy, an associate editor of LA VIE, 
as Chairman of the Basketball Program 

Mr. Guy Euston, treasurer of the club, 
announced that after a study conducted 
to learn the most advantageous meeting 
time, the regular meeting hour would be 
4:00 P. M. in Room 212 every other 
Thursday in the month. 

Miss Begg and her committee will be- 
gin plans immediately on the social and 
entertainment program of the club for 
this year. Miss Begg's committee is now 
planning a social event in the near future 
for club members. 

Mr. Pacy assumes the chairmanship of 
the group which writes and edits the pro- 
grams sold by the club at all home bas- 
ketball games. His committee is also re- 
sponsible for the lay-out of*the attractive 
porgrams which have been so popular in 
past seasons. 

In addition to naming these commit- 
tees, Mr. Moller supplemented their 
membership by assigning members to ad- 
vertising positions. Their role lies in col- 
lecting ads from local merchants who 
have so generously supported the publi- 
cation of these athletic programs in re- 
cent years. 

The club discussed in some detail a 
letter, submitted through a member, 
which suggested an impartial method of 
correcting tests by professors. After 
lengthy consideration, the proposed mo- 
tion suggesting this method to the Stu- 
dent-Faculty Council for their action, 
was passed by a vive voce vote. 

Mrs. Maud P. Laughlin, adviser to 
the club for the past two years, named 
Professor Marvin Wolfgang as the Offi- 
cial Keeper of the club's symbolic flag. 

Miller Attends 
EUB Conference On 
Education In Dayton 

When the General Conference of the 
Evangelical United Brethren Church 
meets in Dayton, Ohio, November 10-20, 
Frederic K. Miller, president of Lebanon 
Valley College, will give a report on the 
status of our college. This general con- 
clave of the highest body of the denomi- 
nation that supports the college will con- 
sider all matters of importance pertaining 
to educational institutions and give di- 
rectives for future progress. This is the 
second General Conference since the for- 
mation of the Evangelical United Breth- 
ren Church in 1946. 

Expecting a large influx of delegates 
and visitors, officials have engaged Mem- 
orial Hall in Dayton as Conference head- 
quarters. Hundreds of visitors from 
across the continent and abroad will ob- 
serve the business sessions and share in 
the inspirational services. Special ralles 
and Sunday services will be held in Day- 
ton churches of our denomination. Dele- 
gates from all continents will represent 
their annual conferences to consider busi- 
ness matters. 

Bishop A. R. Clippinger, D.D., LL.D., 
and Bishop J. S. Stamm, D.D., LL.D., 
L.H.D., will retire from active service 
following General Conference. A dozen 
or more requests from annual confer- 
ences seeking union of the work in over- 
lapping territory will require careful con- 
sideration. The present total of 51 con- 
ferences on this continent likely will be 
considerably reduced by mergers. This 
will make for larger annual conferences 
especially in the west. 

One commission to report to General 
Conference is presently concluding work 
on a survey of our educational institu- 
tions. This report will cover the over- 
lapping of territory for financial ond stu- 
dent support, academic accreditation 
and other factual data to inform the 
General Conference. Another group, 
called the Committee on Survey and 
Trends, is seeking suggestions from the 
"grass roots" in the church for helpful 
procedures to effect a completely united 

Since this is the Sesquicentennial year 
of the founding of the two denomina- 
tions which now comprise the Evangeli- 
cal United Brethren Church, there will 
be much historic emphasis in the ses- 
sions and exhibits. A competent commit- 
tee on church history is preparing mate- 
rial and will present this matter suitably 
to the attention of the whole Church. 

Executives, Wardens 
Elected By Delphian 

At their last meeting on Thursday, 
November the 9th, at 1 1 A. M., the Del- 
phians elected their executive board. Sen- 
ior members of the board are Jeanne 
Edwards and Joan Mattern. Juniors 
elected are Jo Ricedorf and Mickey 
Begg. The Sophs are represented by Lee 
Whiteman and the Forsh by Gail Edgar. 

In addition, four freshmen were elect- 
ed as wardens. They are Fran Shroyer, 
Jeanne Thrush, Jean Garverich and Rita 
Spencer. Joyce Hammock was chosen 
for pianist. 

Plans are also being made for Kalo- 
Delphian weekend, and several cemmit- 
tees have been appointed to work along 
with the Kalo on the annual affair.

S.C.A. Sponsors Annual 
Fair; Campus Chest Will 
Receive All Funds 

Buggie rides, an auction, fortune-tell- 
ong, and many other events marked the 
annual County Fair held on Lebanon 
Valley's campus November 3. The mock 
fair is sponsored annually by the Stud- 
ent Christian Association. And each en- 
tertainment was sponsored by ont of the 
organizations of the school. 

The buggie rides, something new this 
year, proved very popular; and the horse 
and driver were kept busy driving over 
Annville's back streets. Another well- 
liked event was the auction of various 
articles donated by the college profes- 
sors. Offers to buy a dinner for two 
proved most numerous, but there were 
also many kind of food and various 
other items for auction. 

The fair-goer could also entertain 
himself by sending a telegram, having 
his fortune told, or being married and 
enjoying a honeymoon for the small 
price of five cents. He could pitch pen- 
nies, try his hand at basketball, go fish- 
ing for a surprise gift, shoot at a human 
target, or do some dart throwing. 

Though a few fortunate individuals 
won valuable prizes, lollipops seemed to 
be the most popular award. 

Biology Club Elects 
Officers and Board 

The newly organized Biology Club of 
Lebanon Valley College elected its offi- 
cers and board of directors for the com- 
ing year in the organizational meeting. 
The officers are as follows: Richard 
Bothwell, president; John Patterson, vice 
president; Florence Dunkelberger, treas- 
urer; and Fay Hall, secretary. The board 
of directors, whose duty is will be to or- 
ganize meetings,, is composed of four 
members, who are Richard Huntzinger, 
Kieth Lebo, Donald McCurdy, and Betty 

Adviser to the club is Dr. Earl Light, 
head of the Biology department. 

In its first meeting the club also dis- 
cussed and passed on its constitution.

A Dream Come True 

by Dean William Hays 

For many years it has been my secret hope to become affiliated with a small college 
as Dean of Students. In joining the "Lebanon Valley College Family" this September 
I have come to a realization of this "dream." However, just as a house in itself is not 
a home, my position without the extremely wholesome cooperation of the students, 
faculty, and administration, which I am receiving would be quite empty and mean- 
ingless, and I find myself wanting for words to adequately express my appreciation. 

The question, most logically posed at the introduction of a program such as we are 
initiating at Lebanon Valley College might be: (1) What are student personnel ser- 
vices.'* (2) What is the underlying philosophy of this program? (3) Who will benefit 
from these services? Space does not permit lengthy discourse, nor is it necessary, 
for a synopsis will serve to acquaint you with what we are hoping to do. 

The student personnel movement, as such, has commanded the attention of edu- 
cators to fulfill definite needs which the ,'Germanic-born intellectualism" has failed 
to do in producing nature "educated" college graduates. 

Rather than view the student in an "intellectual vacuum" as has been somewhat 
traditional in our American colleges and universities, the student is now thought of 
as a responisble participant in his own development, and not as a passive recipient 
of an economic, political or religious doctrine, or vocational skill. All aspects of the 
personality of each student encompassing the physical, social, emotional, spiritual, as 
well as entellectual are viewed as an integrated whole - as a human personality living, 
working, and growing in a democratic society of other human personalities. 

The program in its entirety will embody the coordination of the following services: 
admissions, orientation, religious and social activities, health and housing, physcial 
education, psychological testing, counseling and guidance, student government, fin- 
ancial aid, part-time employment, placement, and complete records for each student. 

Casual observation would seem to suggest that the services of a "superman" 
(which doesn't exist) are needed to administer this program. In reality it is my duty 
To integrate and coordinate the various services by assisting the faculty and admin- 
istration who have been serving commendably, but haven't been able to accomplish 
all that is desired because of a lack of time and specialized training in this area. 

In order to accomplish our goal - the full maturing of each student - we of the Leb- 
anon Valley College Family (students, faculty, and administration) must work as a 
team, and hope by so doing to make a notable contribution in preparing our young 
men and women for the roles they will play in our world of tomorrow. 

Once again I should like to express my sincere "thanks" for the warm reception 

Once again I should like to express my sincere "thanks" for the warm reception 
and kind hospitality accorded me, and as your Dean of Students I should like you to 
know that "my mind is always open and my door is never closed". May I be of ser- 
vice to YOU? 


November 6, 1950 
Lebanon Valley College 
Recently a professor on this campus introduced a method of testing which, though 
certainly not new, is worthy of mention and is, in the opinion of this writer, worthy 
adoption by all professors. 
The method used is as follows: 
1. When the blue book is handed to the student it has on it a piece of adhesive 
tape on which is a number. A corresponding number is on the blue book. 
2. The student retains the tape as the only means of identification. When the books 
are corrected and graded he identifies his and the grade is recorded. 
The author of this letter does not mean to make inferences of prejudice on the part 
of any professor. The purpose is to only obtain a more accurate and scientific method 
of testing. 

A Student 

On behalf of the sophomore class, I would like to thank the following peo- 
ple for helping to make the sophomore week-end a grand and glorious success: 
Lee Whiteman, Joyce Hammock, and Eppu Gehman, who were on the dance 
decorating committee, and Ruth Evans, Nancy Kline, Liz Kiemmerling, — oyce 
Hammock, and Eppu Gehman, wh oserved as helpers at the Jazz Concert, also 
anyone else who in any way was connected in this past weekend's gala festivities. 

President of the Sophomore Class 







This weeks PROFILE covering Dr. Stuble will only be a digest of the "good doc- 
tor's" personage for the editors cannot possibly devote the time or space necessary to 
do justice to one of the college's most distinguised professors. 

Dr. Struble was born in Northern Iowa in 1900, and attended schools throughout 
many of the Mid-Western states, including Iowa, Oklahoma, Illinois, Kansas, and 
Wisconson, and eastward to New York and Canada. He received the Bachelor of 
Science in Education degree and the Masters of Art in Education from the Univer- 
sity of Kansas, his PhD from the University of Wisconson. He also attended Chicago 
University, Cornell University, and Laval University, Quebec, Canada while fulfill- 
ing requirements for his PhD. 

Dr. Strunle and his wife spent their honeymoon in the Philippine Islands, teaching 
for two years. After their honeymoon, they came home the long way, via Singapore, 
Japan, China, India, the Suez Canal, France, Germany, Denmark, Norway, and Eng- 
land. After returning to the States, Dr. Struble taught a year at Baker University 
in Kansas; two years at the University of North Dakota, and three years parttime at 
the University of Wisconson. He came to Lebanon Valley College in 1931, and has 
taught here since then. At L.V. Dr. Struble serves as head of the English Department, 
as one of the three advisors for the freshmen Liberal Arts students, as advisor of the 
Wig and Buckle Dramatic Club, the Green Blotter, La Vie Colligienne, and is also 
Commencement Marshall. 

Married, and the father of two children, Dr. Struble makes his home in Annville 
with his wife. Some of his hobbies include amateur dramatics, study of French, and

Father: "Do with what? I've never sent 
him any."

Several college professors were dis- 
cussing what they would like to do after 
they retire. 

"Well," said one of them. "I know

get any letters from parents." 

"Not me, I've a much better ambi-

Ramblin' With Woods 

Calling the Co-ed! 

"Get a date for the conserv formal yet?" That's the topic of conversation this week 
The dance this year is being held at The Hershey Country 31ub on December 2 It's 
bound to be one of the biggest social events of the year.... The other big topic this 
week is Thanksgiving plans. Most of the students are going to be doing reports, re- 
ports and more reports. Just ask any philosophy student! Then there are others, who 
are just going to take it easy and catch up on all the sleep lost over mid-semesters. A 
few are really making big plans including Trostle (Martin that is!) 

The big news of the week is Kind Lady. Philo-Clio are getting plans made for the 
big week-end. I dropped in again to see how the show is coming along. Fay Hall is 
really beat (literally!) from the treatment she gets from Kagey. Watch for this bit 
scene! Then there is the scene in which Prof. McKlvein was the stand-in. He came 
out on the stage carrying the baby in his arms. He looked right at home. Then there 
is the breath-taking scene where Spence Williams carries Julie Thatcher off stage. But 
Julie always gets a "laughling spell". I think you'll enjoy this evenings entertainment 
from the very first scene until the climax in the very closing scenes. The Prodigal 
Comes Home. 

What a dreary morning Home-Coming was! (More than one way for yours truly!) 
Yes, the freshmen are still waring dinks. They did put up a good fight. Claude Seif- 
er t was thrown in Quittie even before the Tug-Of-War began. The girls were really 
on the ball with coffee and blankets for the teams. Lucie was almost in "the drink" 
because she was standing up for freshmen rights. "Windy" also did a good job as Cheer 

Then there was the hockey game. That was the bright spot of the day. Our girls 
really made a fine showing. Did you see all the grads Mary and Johnny Light, Dorie 
Eckert, Polly Stoner "Heckie", "Red Achwalm", John Krieg, Charlotte Rohrbaugh, 
The Eigenbrodes (Francis and Bob), Janet Epplby and Norm and lots of others. 

Conversation at a game (Girls!) 

Things were really buzzin! "Who are we playing today? Albright? Why didn't 
someone tell me?".... "I really know more about the football players than football!. . 
"Get a date for the dance yet? I always get dates for some one else and end up with- 
out a date! What! Joe doesn't have a date! He's just my type. I'm 5:11" Now, Ann, 
go over and sorta' break the ice for me."... "You got an A in that history test. Me? 
I got an F just because I thought the Indian had a bigger navy than the French!"... 
"I guess I'll have to watch the game now, because I'm going to the L-Club dance with 
one of the players. I'll pretend I know all about it! "...Cynthia and Dottie really add- 
ed something to festivities... How did you like that trip to Mexico? (Viva of LV Band!) 

The two-one act plays were really great. These put another feather in Wig and 
Buckle's act. Most of the players were new to the LV stage. Dick Klure'r bar-room 
music was something. Bob Zimmerman was the typical gay nineties villian. Darlene 
(WoW!) did a good job as the owner of the "establishment of sin". Tom Henry knew 
how to pour those "Four Rose Shots". 

"Fantasy on an Empty Stage" was terrific. It was something different. Home-Com- 
ing came to an end with the L-Club dance. What a time! 

Men in the Dorm! 

Men had the "time of their lives" on Open House Day. We met everyone from Eddie 
Cantor in South Hall to Pickled Pete in West Hall. The girls in South Hall had some 
time with the cider. Bill Shappell found the hiding place and tried to "hook" a gallon 
of it. We dropped in at the "Dew Drop In", "Ye Olde College Nook", and "Stirrup". 
Barb's room in North Hall was just like Grand Central Station. Some of the high- 
lights of the week-end included the tennis game in North Hall at 3 o'clock in the morn- 
ing, breakfast for two on the terrace of North Hall and the doings of the boys on Fri- 
day night. Some girls slept through the entire affair on Friday night. 

"Come with Me to the Fair" 

Going, going, gone was again the familar cry at the annual county fair. The auction 
at which profs offered their services was the high light of the affair. Miss Gillespie had 
a cake there, Mrs. Cooper baked some of her famous "sticky" buns, Mrs. Smith gave 
a sweater from the new college store, Prof. Rutledge gave a year's subscription to Life 
Prof. Wolfgang offered to type a term paper, the chemistry profs offered to set up 
equipment wash equipment and also a weeks advice to a student. The profs that 
offered dinners included Stachow, Richie, and Shay. The Donmoyers offered a dinner 
plus an ice show, Dean Hayes a dinner and a musical, Dr. Light a dinner and a Rotary 
meeting, and Profs. Bollinger and Woodland a dinner and a show. Sorrentino was there 
with Betty Edelman Ann Blecker was kept busy reading palms. She told one student 
that he would travel especially to foreign countries. The next day he received his draft 
notice: The "buggy ride" was the most popular thing there. Telegrams were delivered 
by Delphian members. Dorie Zarker is now known as the "telegram girl", thanks to 
Dick Moore. Lots of students had their honeymoon to Mars, Italy and Mexico. 
Some even came in contact with "flying saucers" by courtesy of Clio. 

Here, There and Everywhere 

Green Blotter held a meeting last week and accepted two new members. Paul Stam- 
bach was accepted on the basis of his poem, OPus 24, and Bob Rhein for his story 
Ethel. Fred Sample was chosen the president of the newly formed FT A. Congrats. 
The girls of West Hall had a "lost week-end" last week at the "Wolfskins' . But just 
what did happen at three o'clock on Sunday afternoon?... Oh, those poor English

The college professor is my shepherd and I am in dire want; 

He preventeth me from lying down in the bed which I renteth ; 

He leadeth me to distraction with his exam questions; 

He shaketh my resolution to get a college degree; 

He leadeth me to make a fool of myself before my classmates. 

Yea, tho I burn my lamp until the landlady howleth, I fear much evil, 

For he is against me. 

His policies, his theories, and his ranting frighten my wits from me. 

He anointeth my quiz paper with red pencil marks, 

He assigneth me extra work in the presence of mine enemies; 

And my zeros fill a whole column. , ™iw P rar- 

Surely, theories, exams, and themes will follow me all the days of my college 


And I will dwell in the bughouse forever.

EUB Conference 
Held In Dayton 

Youth of the Evangelical United 
Brethern Church from a wide areo ral- 
lied at the General Conference of the 
denomination held in Dayton, Ohio, 
November 14. There was a Youth Serv- 
ice of Christian Witness similar to the 
one held recently in Toronto, Canada, in 
connection with the World Convention 
on Christian Education. About 1500 
young people were present. The scene of 
the rally was the Euclid Avenue Evan- 
gelical United Brethern Church. Youth 
visitors from Dayton and churches all 
over Ohio and Indiana crowded vhe 

The service was conducted by the 
General Youth Fellowship officers, un- 
der the direction of Dr. J. Allan Ranck. 
President Harold F. Davidson presided. 
The service was divided into three ma- 
jor parts. The first, "The Witness of 
Faith," was a period of worship on 
"The Apostles Creed," prepared and di- 
rected by Richard Tholin, General YF 
vice-president. Responsive selections, 
special music and special lighting ef- 
fects made it an inspiring worship ex- 

The second part of the service was 
"The Ecumenical Witness." William 
Barrick, president of the United Chris- 
tian Youth Movement, gave a 15-minute 
address. A 1950 graduate of Phillips 
University, Okla., Bill is presently en- 
rolled at Garret Theological Seminary, 
Evanston, 111. He heads the young people 
of the 43 denominations and youth-serv- 
ing agencies which are part of this con- 
tinent-wide organization which enrolls 
4,000,000 young people His capabilities 
as a speaker for youth of this genera- 
tion made him the prime choice for so 
important an occasion. 

The third part of the service was 
"The Personal Witness." Four young 
people from various countries gave tes- 
timonies regarding their personal faith 
and work in God's kingdom, each for 
seven or eight minutes. The rally closed 
in what is called "The Dedication in 
Prayer" with the singing of Malotte's 
"The Lord's Prayer" in unison. Robert 
(Bing) Crosby of Bonebrake Seminary 
directed the singing. 

Green Blotter Club 
Chooses New Members 

The Green Blotter Club has to date 
taken in to its organization three new 
members, who are Mr. Jones, Paul Stam- 
bach, and Bob Rhiel. The new members 
were selected from a number of students 
who submitted manuscripts in the hope 
of being included in the membership of 
this club for aspiring writers. The club 
is still open to more students interested 
in becoming a member of Green Blotter. 
Anyone wishing to enter the Club should 
submit an orginial composition of any 
type to Dr. Struble. Authorship of all 
manuscripts is kept secret by Dr. Struble 
and the club passes on the merits of 
compostion only as a criterion for mem- 
bership into the club. 

Green Blotter Club meetings are held 
every month at the home of Dr. Stru- 


Do you feel discouraged? Would 
you liqe to go to a quiet place where 
you can forget your problems for a 
few moments? There is a place right 
here on our campus where you can 
do this. Go to the YF room in the 
church basement every Thursday 
morning from 11:30 to 12:00. While 
soft music fills the room, forget your 
worries and let the peace of God take 
their place. 

The program planned tor Thurs- 
day, November 21, has been cancelled 
due to the illness of Mr. Richard Wa- 
ters, who was to have been the speak-

The annual Thanksgiving Service will 
be held again this year in Engle Hall at 
6 A. M. on November 22. All students 
are invited to attend. 

A drive to collect old clothes, toys, 
and old textbooks for needy students 
throughout the world for Christmas will 
be made during the Thanksgiving vaca- 
tion. All students will receive informa- 
tion concerning the drive prior to the 
vacation, and are asked to bring back 
articles that can be contributed for this 
drive. Phyllis Barnhart is chairman of 
this committee. 

Fellowship Hour of November 8 fea- 
tured a commission type program. Those 
present attended one of four discussion 
groups. These covered the subjects of 
Christian Faith and Heritage, Social Re- 
sponsibility, Personal and Campus Af- 
fairs, and World Relatedness. Profs. Mc- 
Kleveen and Ehrhart, and Dean Stone- 
cipher led in three of the discussion 
groups. Each subject was looked at from 
the viewpoint of a Christian. A similar 
t>pe program was presented on Novem- 
ber 15. 

The S.C.A. Choir has begun rehearsal 
for a cantata which will be presented at 
the Midnight Candlelight Service on De- 
cember 18, just before Christmas vaca- 

The Cabinet met Monday evening, 
November 13, in its regular business 
meeting. Future plans and the coming 
National Assembly was discussed. 

Hart Helmich, of the Student Chris- 
tian Movement staff of the Middle At- 
lantic Region, met with interested stu- 
dents Wednesday afternoon, November 
15, in relation to National Assembly to 
be held December 27, 1950, to January 
2, 1951, at Miami University in Oxford, 
Ohio. This is the "town meeting" of 
more than 2,000 students, and they will 
be representing SCA's Y.M, and YWCA's 
from all over the country, with many 
foreign countries represented. L.V.'s quo- 
ta is five students. At the present time 
three students are planning to attend. 

The gathering together of many 
worthy campaigns into one drive on the 
LVC Campus began on October 31. The 
Campus Chest, as it is known, is under 
the direction of Earl Redding and "Peg" 
Bower, the two vice-presidents of the S. 
C. A. The goal of $1.00 per student per 
semester has been set, and committee 
members are at present contacting every 
member of the student body. 


The "town meeting" of more than 
2,000 students, all members of Student 
CAs, YMs and YWCAs throughout the 
country, will be held at Oxford, Ohio, 
at Miami University on December 27, 
1950, to January 2, 1951. Here is an op- 
portunity to become acquainted with 
some of the leaders of tomorrow, many 
world-wide known leaders of today, and 
to meet other students throughout the 
U. S. and many students that will be rep- 
resenting foreign Student Christian 
Movements. Here are the objectives of 
the National Assembly. "We look to the 
Assembly, our "Town Meeting" of the 
Movement for these things: a clarifica- 
tion and deepened appreciation of the 
Christian faith and of the will of God 
for us in relation to the problems of our 
day; a sense of direction for the Student 
Christian Association Movement to 
achieve these primary objecitves. Enrich- 
ing values will permeate the Assembly 
days as the delegates work and worship 
together and as they experience fun and 
good fellowship." 

Here is your opportunity to be a part 
of the heart of the Student Christian 
Association Movement in the U. S. A.

Miss Myers Completes 
29th Year As Librarian 

As familiar with Vergil's Aeneid as 
wit hthe latest book on nuclear physics, 
and almost an institution within an in- 
stitution, is Miss Helen E. Myers, librar- 
ian at Lebanon Valley Collage. Miss 
Myers, who has spent the last 29 years 
of her life as librarian in the college, 
is a woman of gentle patience and moth- 
erly mien. 

A graduate of Lebanon Valley, class 
of 1907, and the Drexel Institute Library 
School, she did library work at the New 
York Public Library, the University of 
Chicago Library, and the Lancaster Pub- 
lic Library. She became librarian of Leb- 
anon Valley College in 1 82 i , at which 
time the library contained approximately 
5,500 volumes, and was staffed by Mish 
Myers and several student assistants. 
Since then the library, which was origi- 
nally designed to house 12,000 volumes, 
has grown to 47,387 books, with a staff 
of 6 full time and 9 part time employ- 

With the exception of the wide-eyed, 
continually confused freshmen, Miss My- 
ers' biggest headache is finding enough 
space for the everincreasing number of 
books. A partial solution to the space 
problem was the installation of a micro- 
film library of newspapers and periodi- 
cals and a Recordak microfilm reader. 
Thih saves up to 95% of the space for- 
merly required to store magazines and 

Miss Myerse is currently engaged in 
tracing the history of an old and valuable 
book which is causing some excitement 
among historians and bibliophiles. It was 
published in 1803, and is believed to be 
the first book published in Bucks County, 

When asked what she thought of the 
29 years she spent in the college library, 
she considered the question a moment, 
then replied, "When I came here in 1921 
I made up my mind to give the college 
a good library. I think the college has a 
good library today, and I have never re- 
gretted the choice I made in life." 

Miss Myers lives at 120 College Ave- 
iue, Annville, about a half-block down 
the street from the college library. 

Jazz at Engle II came off in grand 
style last Friday night. Curtain found 
the Trostle aggregation faced by a full 
house who remembered the last concert 
and were looking forward to this one 
with lots of anticipation. 

Whjle the audience was still applaud- 
ing the theme, they were caught on ihe 
edge of their seats with James' Jump 
Town. Leader Don Trostle kept them 
alternately relaxed and jumping all 
through the first half of the concert. 
The saxes did a grand overall job, high- 
lighted by their featured renditions of 
Opus in Pastels and Four Brothers. All 
the reeds played inspired solos at var- 
ious times in addition to their precise 
section work. Dale Musselman of Har- 
risborg captured the solo spot with Lynn 
Blecker for Don's original composition, 
Schnooky Baby. They gave the crowd a 
fast and furions dogfight. 

Gene Tritch took his solo flight on 
Danny Boy, and really earned his wings. 
His sweet but powerful tone wore the 
edges off the "square" clarinet introduc- 
tion, and recaptured the theme from the 
piano after he caught his second wind. 
Just before his solo, he warmed up on 

Doris Cortright presented a smoky 
rendition of Blue Moon and Thinking of 
You, backed by Trostle's "combo." In- 
cidently, this versatile young lady is al- 
so a very fine drummer. She is a fine 
addition to any group. 

The Dee Tones, composed of Ann 
Shroyer, Gene Tritch, John Heck, and 
Don Trostle, sang a wonderful version 
of Don's "five-way" arrangement of 


Judaline, and made a successful presen- 
tation of one of Don's originals, That I 
Care, words by Lee Whiteman ami 
Joyce Hammock. Tritch supplied the in- 
strumental background for both of these. 

By Trumpet Blues time, the trumpets 
decided that they had been making lots 
of noise from the back seat long enough. 
Trostle joined the section to take the 
wheel, and with him, they began ignor- 
ing all speed signs and Quiet zones. 
Tritch acted as traffic officer. The stage 
was changed for the second half while 
the audience molded their ears back in- 
to shape. The second half of the concert 
started with thet band, now adorned in 
tuxes and augmented by a string sec- 
tion and a portion of the L. V. C. Glee 
Club, presenting an austere picture. 
They surprised everyone with a hand- 
clapping arrangement of Dear Hearts 
and Gentle People. 

The entire group wound up the even- 
ing with Don's special arrangement of 
All The Things You Are. It seems that 
Mr. Trostle has definite musical tenden- 
cies. The piece was a genuine piece of 
modern art. His equally fine encore was 
last year's arrangement of Tenderly. 
That wound things up for this year. 
Here's to Jazz at Engle III. 

Playing its only Christmas Day foot- 
ball game in history, Lebanon Valley 
defeated the University of Tampa 6-0 at 
Tampa, Fla., on December 25, 1935. 

Lawrence M. Kinsella, of Linden, N. 
J., and Charles L. Zimmerman, of Leba- 
non, Pennsylvania, will co-captain the 
1950-51 Lebanon Valley basketball team.

University of Scranton Powerful Opponent for Dutchmen 

Highly Touted Royals Have 
Fallen Only to Quantico 

Lebanon Valley will bring its 1950 
football campaign to a close on Satur- 
day evening in the Lebanon High School 
Stadium by meeting the once-beaten, 
power-laden football legion of the Uni- 
versity of Scranton. Kickoff time for 
the engagement is set for 8:00 P. M. 

Scranton will bring a very impressive 
record into Lebanon having won six 
games while losing only one. Their lone 
defeat was suffered at the hands of the 
powerful Quantico Marines who are 
spearheaded by the great College of the 
Pacific Ail-American, Eddie LeBaron. 
Scranton met the service aggregation, 
composed of ex-collegiate anl profes- 
sional stars, at Alexandria, Virginia and 
was downed for the first and only time 
this season 41-21. The Royals gave the 
highly touted Marines a demonstration 
of their power but the superior calibre 
of more experienced and powerful grid- 
sters on the Quantico squad proved voo 
difficult an array for the Royals from 
Pennsylvania to subdue. 

Scranton opened its season by trounc- 
ing one of last year's unbeaten and un- 
tied teams, St. Vincent, 20-7. Last sea- 
son the Bearcats won ten straight games. 
Lafayette came next for the Royals and 
the Leopards were beaten by the same 
scode as Scranton ran up the previous 
week. 20-7. Gannon College of Erie, 
the school that never lost a football 
game since it was established only re- 
cently was the following opponent of the 
Purple and White. Gannon's unbeaten 
and untied grid history crumpled on the 
turf of Scranton's Dunmore Stadium as 
the Royals pounded the Goldne Knights 
by a 34-7 margin. The first opponent 
that Lebanon Valley has also played 
was on the Scranton schedule the follow- 
ing week when Pennsylvania Military 
College was blanked 26-0. The Flying 
Dutchmen also defeated the Cadets, 
eking by 7-6 in rain-soaked Lebanon 
High Stadium on November 4. Bounc 
ing back from their loss to the Marines, 
which was far from being a shame, the 
Scranton eleven battered Lebanon Val- 
ley's arch rival Albright, 34-13. This of 
course is the same Albright which down- 
ed the Dutchmen on Homecoming Day. 
Muhlenberg was listed as the ensuing foe 
for the Scrantonians and they were 
stopped 20-13, the same score resulting 
from the Valley-Berg fracas. That, then 
is the record of these Royals who enter 
Saturday night's clash heavily favored. 

This contest will mark the fifth meet- 
lr <g between the two institutions. The 
fir st game was played in 1936 when 
Scranton was known as St. Thomas Col- 
lege. That year the Tommies shut-out 
the Lebanon squad 18-0. The next meet- 
ln g did not occur until 1947 and this 
Proved to be the only triumph for the 
Valley thus far in the series. That year 
Scranton, which changed to that name 
fr °rn Saint Thomas in 1937, was sport 
ln 8 a fine record and established quite 
an impressive reputation before meeting 
the Flying Dutchmen. Andy Kerr's men 
however, threw a wrench into any hopes 
0r a great Scranton setson by upending 
the Royals 13-7. Scranton came back the 
following two years and repaid the Val- 
ev more than enough for that loss. In 
948 the Miners romped over the Kerr- 
111611 26-0 and last season repeated the 
Cutout by four less pointe, 22-0. 

Last year the Royals ended the season 
Vv ith five wins and five losses. Five of 

se losses however were administered 


such major opponents as St. Bona- 
Ver >ture, Fordham, Canisius, Boston Uni- 
^ ersit y, and Dayton. The Royals de- 
ated Muhlenberg, Moravian, Niagara, 
lbri ght, and the Flying Dutchmen. 
Sc ranton is coached by Peter A. Car- 

lesimo. Pete is in his seventh season as 
head pilot of the Royal's gridiron for- 
tunes. He took over the reins early in 
1944 after assisting Robert "Pop" Jones 
during the 1942 season. Since Scranton 
had no varsity football team in 1943 
Carlesimo returned to the scene in 1944. 
Since that time Carlesimo has guided 
Scranton's football destinies to 34 wins 
26 losses and two ties. Pete is a product 
of Fordham University where he learn- 
ed his football under "Sleepy" Jim 
Crowley during the years 1937-38-39 
when Fordham produced several of 
their greatest teams. Following his grad- 
uation from Fordham, Carlesimo enter- 
ed the coaching profession in his home 
town of Newark, N. J. where he coached 
the St. Benedict Prep elevens through 
two successful seasons. Aside from his 
football duties he is also the Assistant 
Director of Athletics of the University. 

The Chief Clerk of the Prothonotary 
Office of Lackawanna County is Scran- 
ton's line coach. This person being An- 
thony Lawrence, Scranton '39. Law- 
rence is cosidered one of the most out- 
standing guards to have ever worn the 
Purple and White. He is also a grad- 
uate of the Georgetown University Law 

John Garvey is the newest addition to 
Scranton's coaching staff. Garvey is a 
native of Scranton and played halfback 
for Yale, graduating in 1929. Garvey 
was the Eli's ace punter and winner of 
several Big Blue gridiron awards. He is 
a master of precision and timing and is 
the man chiefly responsible for Scran- 
ton's well drilled backs. 

Coaching the ends and the Freshmen 
team is Jack Koniszewski who came to 
Scranton after playing three years of 
professional football with the Washing- 
ton Redskins. Jack was an all-around 
athlete while attending George Wash- 
ington University from which he re- 
ceived his degree in 1943. 

This year Scranton is led by its po- 
tential Little Ail-American guard, cap- 
tain Al Applegate who hails from Hack- 
ettstown, N. J. Applegate, who was se- 
lected by a leading national sports maga- 
zine as one of this year's Little All- 
American guards, is 23 years of age, 
weighs 225 lbs. and scrapes the marker 
at 5-11". He's a senior and was All- 
Pennsylvania guard last fall, also gain- 
ing All-Catholic and Little AU-Ameri- 
can honors. Applegate, besides being a 
60-minute player handles all the extra 
point and kickoff duties for the Royals. 

Two other linemen who have proved 
to be a key factor in the Lackawanna 
Countians success are end Dom Col- 
angelo and center John Woodbridge. 
Like Applegate, these two have also been 
60-minute players for the Royals. Col- 
angelo has caught 23 passes for a total 
of 400 yards. 

The Quantica match proved rather 
disastrous to Scranton as key players 
suffered injuries. Sophomore tackle, 
Robert Maguire, fractured his leg and 
will be lost for the season while the 
Royals backfield ace, Bill Newman, was 
also sidelined with injuries. However, 
Carlesimo found a replacement for 
Newman in James Heilig who came 
through with two TD's over Albright. 
Dan Shea is the Royals passing ace. In- 
cluding the Albright game he has com- 
pleted 35 out of 58 throws for a net 
gain of 613 yards. Shea gave LeBaron 
a little duel completing 9 out of 15 
passes for 144 yards. Returning to the 
backfield after recovering from an early 
injury is Eddie Niemeyer, sophomore 
right half. Therefore, this Scranton 
team will be well healed and up and 
ready for the Dutchmen. 

Valley Eleven Flops 
As Western Maryland 
Is Triumphant 19-7 

Slowly, but surely, Western Maryland 
is establishing some sort of a football 
jinx over Lebanon Valley. Saturday af- 
ternoon the Flying Dutchmen trekked to 
Hoffa Field in Westminster, Maryland 
and saw a 7-6 half-time lead wiped out 
in the second portion of the game as 
the Green Terrors trampled a rather 
pathetic squadron of Lebanonians to the 
tune of 19-7. It was the third time in 
three years that the Dutchmen yielded 
to the Mason-Dixonites. In 1948 the 
Terrors won 13-0 on the same field and 
last year humiliated the Blue and White 
39-7 in Lebanon. The loss was the third 
for the visitors against four triumphs 
while it marked Western Maryland's 
seasonal standing at 5-2. Lebanon Val- 
ley registered its only triumph over 
WMC in 1914 by 21-3. 

As far as the game itself was concern- 
ed it was one of the worst, if not the 
worst, the Valley has played all season. 
At times the contest looked as though 
two high school teams were battling 
each other with neither team exhibiting 
the exceptional. The Southerners rushed 
the Lebanon Valley passing attack; pour- 
ing in upon the Dutchmen passers in 
disgusting fashion as they threw the Val- 
ley for losses time and time again. Wes- 
tern Maryland did not flash anything 
out of the ordinary but they had the 
condolence of being triumphant. 

The Marylanders drew first blood 
when the Green and Gold took over on 
the LVC 31 with quarterback Harlow 
Henderson setting the pace and moved 
to the Dutchmen 15. Henderson then 
flipped an aerial to Renaldi who crossed 
the double stripe to make it 6-0 when 
Don Phillips missed the extra point. 

Lebanon Valley roared back in fine 
fashion when Joe Oxley received a punt 
on the WMC 27. Ray Dankowski passed 
to the reliable co-captain, end Bob 
Fischer who raced to the seven upon 
grabbing the heave. From here Fred 
Sample, playing left half-back, ran it 
over for a touchdown. Tom Quinn suc- 
cessfully booted the bonus marker and 
the Dutchmen were in the van 7-6. With 
this rejuvenation of some of that lost 
gridiron glisten it looked as though the 
Valley would really turn it on in the 
second half. 

Well, the only thing the Valley turn- 
ed on after that was the bus motor to 
bring them home. As was evident in the 
first half, the crew of Coach Ralph Rick- 
er could not capitalize on scoring op- 
portunities and this factor turned up 
again in the third and fourth stanzas as 
several scoring chances popped up but 
were badly handled and this coupled 
with bad breaks such as penalties made 
it a dismal afternoon for the Flying 

For its second touchdown Western 
started on its own 31 and travelled to 
the 47 where the passing combo of Hen- 
derson to Renaldi worked again this 
time down to the 38. Henderson follow- 
ed this with another good ozone attempt 
to Red Collins who scampered to the 
five. Then, the same play to the left 
side of the line by which the Terrors 
racked up four touchdowns in last year's 
slaughter, proved just as effective a year

LV Football Ends 
For Co-Captains 

Saturday night on the green sod of 
the Lebanon Higs School Stadium, Leba- 
non Valley's two senior footballers, 
Robert Richard Fischer and Norman 
Gilbert Lukens will play their last foot- 
ball game for Lebanon Valley. These 
boys have served as co-captains this 
past season and have done a wonderful 
job at that and also at playing their re- 
spective positions, Fischer at end and 
Lukens at center. The game on Satur- 
day evening will wind up the four year 
gridiron history they have written since 
their arrival at the Valley in 1947. That 
year Fischer and Lukens played as 
Freshmen on the same team which stun- 
ningly upset our opponents for this week, 
the University of Scranton. 

Undoubtedly, Valley faithful will re- 
member "Glue Fingers" Fischer and 
"Bud" Lukens for time to come. Fischer, 
always out there pulling down the seem- 
ingly impossible and Lukens charging 
hard or defending that line to the ut- 
most. We will always remember the two 
touchdown passes Fischer snagged 
against Albright this year, turning them 
into the only Blue and White scores of 
the game and how can we forget the 
seemingly unbelievable aerial he hauled 
in during the opening moments of the 
Moravian game and then scooted for a 
touchdown. We can always recall Lu- 
kens coming out of the huddle, getting 
over the ball and then holding up that 
middle. We will always remember the 
Upsala game of 1948 when he broke 
through the Viking line, blocked a punt, 
and ran 47 yards for the touchdown 
that gave Lebanon Valley the win at 
19-13. There are many more feats these 
two have accomplished here at the Val- 
ley; they have spoken for themselves. 
Aside from their inspired play those 
long, hard hours of practice during the 
fall of each year must not be forgotten. 
They have what it takes and they cer- 
tainly did honor to the title of Lebanon 
Valley College football co-captains. Lu- 
kens and Fischer, a fine duo, we're proud 
of them. 

Fischer is the son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Otto Fischer of 1 Martin Place, in Little 
Falls, N. J. Bob attended Passaic Val- 
ley High School, from where he grad- 
uated in 1946 after playing football, 
basketball and baseball. Fischer is 22 
years old, weoghs 190 and stands 5' 11". 
Thus far, Fischer has scored four touch- 
downs for twenty-four points this year. 

Lukens is the son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Wm. Henry Lukens of 32 South 2nd 
Street, Wormleysburg, Pennsylvania. 
"Luke" graduated from Lemoyne High 
School in 1944 where he competed in 
football, basketball, and baseball, serv- 
ing as football co-captain in his senior 
year. Aside from playing football here 
at the Annville institution he has also 
pjarticipated in baseball, playing third 
base. Before coming to Lebanon Valley, 
Lukens served in the Navy for two years, 
eighteen months of which were spent 
overseas. He was in the Amphibian 
Corps of our Navy. Luken was married 
to the former Ellen Jepsen, LVC '50, 
this past summer and they now reside 
in Camp Hill. Norm is also president of 
the Varsity L Club. 

This then, is the brief tribute we wish 
to pay to two of the Valley's football 
stars of the last four years. To them we 
wish the best of luck and many more 
touchdowns in life. 

Two Lebanon Valley College girls 
were chosen by a selection board of 
coaches last week for positions on the 
Central Pennsylvania Field Hockey team 
which will compete in the Mid-East 
Tournament this weekend when the Cen- 
tral Pennsylvania Field Hockey Team 
will meet the Finger Lakes (Rochester, 
N. Y.) and Pittsburgh area teams at the 
Polo Grounds in Camp Hill. 

Jeanne Hutchinson, a Junior from Ja- 
cobstown, N. J., was chosen for a posi- 
tion on the starting varsity eleven, while 
Mary Elizabeth Roper, a junior from 
Dover, Del., was selected as a substitute. 
The selections were based on perform- 
ance in competitive paly between six col- 
leges and two professional hockey teams. 

The tournament, which will close with 
playoffs between the Central Pennsylva- 
nia, Finger Lakes, and Pittsburgh area 
teams, began on November 3, when a se- 
lection board composed of the coaches 
of the participating colleges chose two 
All-College teams from the following ag- 
gregation of schools: Lebanon Valley 
College, Gettysburg College, Shippens- 
burg, Millersville, and Lock Haven 
Teachers Colleges, Susquehanna Univer- 
sity, and Pittsburgh and Rochester Asso- 
ciation teams. 

Four Lebanon Valley Hockey girls 
were chosen for the All-College Team. 
They were as follows: Jeanne Hutchin- 
son, Mary Elizabeth Roper, Ruth Ann 
Brown, and Diane Randolph. 

On November 11, at Lancaster the 
All-College teams with the Harrisburg 
and Lancaster Club teams at which time 
the selection board chose the outstanding 
players for the two teams that will rep- 
resent the Central Pennsylvania Field 
Hockey Association in the Mid-East Sec- 
tional Tournament held November 18 
and 19 at Camp Hill. Jeanne Huchinson 
and Mary Elizabeth Roper attained this 
honor and will play on the Central Penn- 
sylvania Field Hockey Teams in the 
Mid-East Tournament this weekend. 

Sociology 21 Class 
Conducts Religious 
Census of Annville 

Annville, Pa., October — A religious 
census of Annville, Pa., conducted by 
sociology students at Lebanon Valley 
College, has produced a statistical 
glimpse into the make-up of a small 
Pennsylvania town. This census covered 
only Annville proper, hence does not in- 
clude the adjacent townships. Complete 
coverage of the town in the census was 
not possible because of the unavailability 
of eighty families. This survey, made 
with the cooperation of the Annville 
Council of Churches, served several pur- 
poses: (1) it fulfilled the call of the Fed- 
eral Council of the Churches of Christ in 
America for community-wide religious 
censuses; (2) it provided the Annville 
Council of Churches with information 
conmerning persons who are not mem- 
bers, but who have church preferences 
as well as persons who are neither mem- 
bers nor have church preferences, thus 
making possible an evangelizing pro- 
gram; (3) it provided an opportunity for 
students to engage in research; (4) it 
stimulated a cooperative relationship be- 
tween the college, the churches, and the 

Statistics showed that approximately 
50% of the residents of Annville had 
lived there less than 10 years. On the 
other hand, more than 10% had been 
residents for 40 years or longer. On the 
educational side, 32.17% the residents 
had 8 years of schooling or less, 50% 
had 9-12 years of schooling, and 17.87% 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 16, 1950 


(Continued from Page 5) 
had some college training. This last fig- 
ure is larger than the national average 
(12.1%) of persons with college training, 
but may be explained by the presence of 
Lebanon Valley College. 

The Annville census seems to support 
the widely held theory that similars 
mate, and not opposites. In Annville, 
67.8% of the married couples fell into 
the same broad educational classifica- 
tions. In other words, husbands whose 
schooling stopped after eight years of 
grade school or less had wives with ap- 
proximately the same amount of school- 
ing. The same observation was recorded 
for husbands and wives with high school 
and college education. 

In the occupational survey, there was 
a higher proportion of professional per- 
sons in Annville than reported for the 
nation. However, the nation has nearly 
twice as many proprietors, managers, of- 
ficials, and clerks. Annville's percentage 
of skilled workers (11%) was approxi- 
mately the same as for the nation, but 
the town had seven per cent more semi- 
skilled workers than the nation, and ten 
per cent more unskilled workers. The 
Annville population has been compared 
with the national per cent distribution 
of white employed workers, because the 
community has no Negroe residents. For- 
ty-eight per cent of the population of the 
town (including housewives, children, 
persons retired, and unemployed) is 
unempolyed, which means that this num- 
ber is supported by slightly over half of 
the population. 

The religious census showed that 
88.49% of the residents af Annville are 
church members or have a church pref- 
erence either in or outside of the town. 
Nearly three-quarters, howevei, have ei- 
ther membership or preference in Ann- 
ville. Persaus who were members of a 
chur cheither in or outside the commu- 
nity numbered 68.59%. Over 56 per 
cent are members in Annville and 12.3 
per cent are members outside of Ann- 
ville. This last group is one of the most 
important from the viewpoint of the 
purpose of the study. A table of church 
membership of persons living in Annville 
who are members of Annville Churches 
is listed below: 

Denomination p e r Cent 

Evangelical Congregational 11.5 

Evangelical United Brethren 25.0 

Evangelical Reformed 17.7 

Brethren _ 52 

Roman Catholic 141 

First Evangelical Lutheran 13.0 

St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran . . . 10.6 

United Christian 2.9 

One of the most important facts re- 
lated to church attendance showed that 
the total average attendance at Sunday 
morning services was 55.6% of the total 
church membership, whereas the Sunday 
evening services (four churches report- 
ing) totaled 16.2% of the total enroll- 
ment, while an average attendance at the 
midweek services (five churches report- 
ing) was 8.5%. 



I, Noem Rides Again! 
Call Harvard Over Brown 

Army, Oklahoma, California, Navy, 
Northwestern, and Ohio State Picked 

Due to the fact that I. Noem has been very busy with those horrors to top all horrs 
called "mid-semesters" he hasn't had time to calculate his prognostication percent- 
age, but the crystal gazer graciously informs his readers, all three of them, that he is 
far ahead in calling them. In other words the pigskin picking wizard has called many 
more right than wrong. Now, for this week's gems of wisdom. 

Alabama meets Georgia Tech so, purely on the basis of maintaining friendship with 
my buddy Jaworsky, Noem picks the Crimson Tide by 20-6.... Albright surprised 
Gettysburg last week (they're pretty good at suprising I see) but this Saturday they 
play a much tougher 'berg therefore it's Muhlenberg by 35-7.... Arkansas plays SMU 
and the way things look it's gonna be a mighty sad day for the Razorbacks. The Must 
angs will be on the rebound from those two losses to Texas and Texas A&M so, here's 
one for Kyle Rote & Company, 33-13.. ..Army will find Stanford rougher than New 
Mexico but not that rough. The Cadets march on, 38-6... Boston University plasy 
Idaho and this is just a waste of energy for the Vandals. They're going to be mighty 
tired from that cross-country jaunt. Boston, by 27-6.. ..Brown goes to Cambridge to 
take on Harvard. After that 50-0 loss to Penn, Bruno the Bruin should mangle Johnny 
Harvard, but Noem envisions ein grosse upset in the making. Here's one out on the 
limb for the Crimson. Harvard 26-21....BuckneIl at Delaware seems as though it 
will be a good game. Bucknell will feel good anyhow. The Bisons stampede 25-14 
California plays host to San Francisco. This is one of those "state wide courtesy 
games" with Cal able to call the score. Noem sees Cal running it up to 40 but Frisco 
coming back with 12. Cal, 40-12. ...Colgate plays Syracuse and we'll stick with the 
Orange. Syracuse 34-20... Columbia may be the gem of the ocean in a truely it's the 
Navy. The Middies over the Lions in their best game of the year, 21-0.... Cornell has 
been slipping and Dartmouth has been improving but we think the slipping stops here, 
the Big Red taking the Oak Green 20-7. 

Oho State at Illinois will be one of the better games of the season. Noem sees heap 
big upset but is chicken to call it so, it's Wesley Fesler's Flashy Buckeyes on the romp 
20-13. ..Indiana over Marquette by 21-0, not very easy as the Hoosiers may assume. 
Nebraska will shock Iowa State 34-13. ..Iowa on the other hand will throw a terriffic 
scare into Notre Dame but the Irish will pull through 14-7.. .Kansas at Kansas State 
finds the latter severely the underdog. The Jay hawkers in a runaway 39-0... North 
Dakota at Kentucky will probably be the mismatch of the season. However, can't 
be any worse than New Mesico-Army. Paul Bryant of Kaintuck could try for 100 but 
Noem thinks he'll stop at 64-0.... Lafayette at Lehigh. Well, well, well.once again the 
country's steadiest football rivalry comes to be. All we have to say here is that if 
Lehigh loses this one, then the Engineers can forget about all those they've one. 
It'll be hard, but Gabriel and Doyne will skin the Leopard and once again the bell 
will toll in Bethlehem. Lehigh 20-0... Maryland will take West Virginia easily. Let's 
say 33-7?. ...Miami, Fla. Meets Florida in their annual playboy series. Well, the Miami 
boys could leave their beaches and basket-weaving long enough to trim their Gaines- 
ville friends by about 27-6.... Michigan State is host to Pitt and all Noem has to say 
is, watch that panther. There's going to be trouble before the big cat falls, but Michi- 
gan State isn't dropping this one. The Spartans, 27-7... Out of nowhere we pick 
Northwestern to throttle Michigan 20-7...Bernie Bierman tendered his resignation at 
Minnesota and Purdue will seal it with 26-6 conquest of the hapless Gophers. Wha' 
hoppen' there Bernie, anyhow ?....01e Miss meets Tennessee and brother them there 
Colonels will ride. Tennessee 26-7. 

Oklahoma plays Missouri. After that comeback against Kansas, Noem fears the 
Sooners. Oklahoma 34-12.. ..Rutgers travels to Penn State and will give the Nittany 
Lions a game of it but the Scarlet doesn't have enough to pull through this year. Penn 
State 20-7... Penn meets Wisconsin in one of the greatest intersectional battles of the 
year. Reds Bagnell and all of Philadelphia won't stop the Badgers once they get roll- 
ing. Wisconsin in a squeaker, 27-20... Temple runs up against Fordham and that's 
just about all they'll do, run up against them. Fordham 26- 13.... Texas meets TCU 
in what will prove to be a typical Southwestern football rodeo. However, the Long- 
horns get the nod here. Texas 21-7...Tulane will walk all over Virginia. The Green 
Wave, 28-6. ...Washington will stop Southern California. Noem sees this one 17-14.... 
Yale meets Princeton and there will be plenty of pressure on those Tigers. Don't kid 
yourselves, Eli Yale is dangerous. But, the odds favor Princeton too much. Here's 
one for the boys from the home state, Princeton over the Big Blue 26-13. 

Results of Our Opponents

later as Henderson cut loose again, this 
time to Tullai who nabbed it going over 
to paydirt. Paul Tereshinski's kick was 
wide of the uprights but the Westmin 
ster eleven took over a permanent lead 
at 12-7. 

With the fourth period half gone, Ira 
Zepp punted and the ball was touched 
by a Lebanon Valley player on the LV 
1 1 . Bruce Rudisill capitalized on this un- 
fortunate L. V. C. miscue and it was 
just a matter of minutes before the 
homesters turned the misstep into a 
score. Henderson drove to the six, but 
an offside penalty set the ball back to 
the 11. The ensuing play saw the win 
ners work a double reverse as Tullai 
scored and Phillips ' kick split the up- 
rights to end the fray at 19-7.

IVlrs. Laughlin Resigns 
Pol Sci Club Advisor 

Mrs. Maud P. Laughlin, head of the 
political Science and Sociology Depart- 
ments of the college, officially tendered 
jjer resignation as advisor to the Politi- 
cal Science Club at the regular meeting 
on November 30. Professor Marvin 
\Volfgang of the Sociology Department, 
w iH take the position held by Mrs. 
Laughlin for the past two years. 

Mrs. Laughlin began her affiliation 
w jth the club in the college term 1948- 
49 ; when the club was organized. Char- 
ter members and members from the last 
year can never forget the encourage- 
ment, the aid during trying days, or the 
critical but sincere advice given by her 
during the formative period. The mere 
presence of an ever-ready firm hand 
served to steady the course this club has 
followed in its two year history of a- 
chievement. In a moving talk at a pre- 
vious meeting, Mrs. Laughlin announced 
her decision to relinquish her post, due 
to pressing collegiate work, which in- 
volves heading the Social Studies Divi- 
sional Organization in the plan for re- 
organizing general education require- 
ments next year. However, the former 
advisor stated that she intends to main- 
tain her standing as an active member 
of the club. 

Club members were consoled in their 
loss by the appointment of Professor 
Marvin Wolfgang. Professor Wolfgang, 
through his many student contacts and 
his previous active interest in the Politi- 
cal Science Club, is uniquely qualified 
to continue the personal and technical 
excellence of the advisor to the Political 
Science Club. 

President pro tern Robert Moller con- 
ducted the meeting, which was of busi- 
ness nature. The meeting concerned final 
plans for the basketball programs which 
will be sold again this year at home bas- 
ketball games. 

Miss Dorothy Dando, secretary, gave 
a report for the Social Committee, and 
the club approved the recommendation 
made to hold its first social meeting in 
January. Instructions to plan an ap- 
propriate evening were received by the 
Social Committee. 

Dr. Pope Continues 
Lectureship Series 

The religion in Life Lectureship se- 
ries, a new feature at Lebanon Valley 
this year, will sponsor a special speaker, 
Dr. Liston Pope of Yale University, on 
Tuesday, December 12. He will speak 
at Chapel service in the morning, at a 
seminar for students at four in the af- 
ternoon, and at a joint meeting for the 
entire town at 7:30 P. M., in the College 
church. His topic for the day will be, 
"The Place of Religion in the Field of 

Dr. Pope left the Congregational 
ministry in 1938 to lecture at Yale. He 
was selected Professor of Social Ethics 
in 1947 and Dean of the Divinity School 
in 1949. He is well qualified to speak on 
the subject labor, since he served on 
many Labor Dispute Boards and was 
chief lecturer at the Presbyterian Insti- 
tute of Industrial Relations from 1944- 
48. He also served as a member of the 
Industrial Relations Committee of the 
former Federal Council of Churches 
and edited the magazine "Social Action" 
from 1944-48. 

Though scheduled as second, Dr. Pope 
will actually be the first speaker of the 
lectureship series, since Dr. Henry Smith 
Leiper, the supposed first speaker, was 
not able to be here because of bad wea- 
ther. Arrangements are being made to 
have Dr. Leiper here at some later date. 

Chemistry Club 
Features Movies 

On November 16, 1950, the chemistry 
club held its second meeting of the year. 
Bob Miller opened the meeeting with a 
short business session after which the 
following films were shown: "A Short 
Course in Paper Making," "Drama of 
Steel," "The Story of Formica," and 
"Sightseeing at Home." 

The meeting was concluded with the 
serving of refreshments. 

Dr. Pooley Confers with Faculty; 
College Introduces New Courses 

Dr. Robert C. Pooley of the Univer- 
sity of Wisconsin conferred with faculty 
members of Lebanon Valley College on 
December 1 and 2. Dr. Pooley, English 
Professor at the University of Wisconsin, 
heads that university's Department of 
ln tegrated Liberal Studies, a program in 
general education. In an interview, Dr. 
p ooley stated: "At present Lebanon Val- 
ley College is interested in developing a 
Pattern of general education. I am here 
as a consultant to offer advice and sug- 

Dr. Pooley served as a special con- 
stant to the pre-induction training

immediate effect of this program 
new courses in General Educa- 

tion, required of all students for grad- 
uation. One, in the humanities, will be 
taken in the sophomore year; the other, 
in social studies, will be taken in the 
junior year. Dr. George G. Struble, 
professor of English, will head the Hu- 
manities course, and Mrs. Maud P. 
Laughlin, professor of Political Science 
and Sociology, will administer the course 
in Social Studies. 

The course in Social Studies will at- 
tempt to integrate the fields of econo- 
mics, political science, and sociology by 
means of a study of the historical deve- 
lopment of the institutions in these 
areas, and by an examination of their 
operation in modern society. The course 
in the humanities will draw material 
from the ancient and modern literatures 
of continental Europe, and from English 
and American literature. In addition it 
will seek to indicate the significance of 
the material studied in terms of the de- 
veloping mind of man and in terms of 
his search for values. It will also at- 
tempt to show how the developments in 
literature are paralleled by similar de- 
velopments in art and music. 

Conserv Presents 
Symphony Orchestra 
Concert on Thursday 

The Lebanon Valley College Sym- 
phony Orchestra will present its annual 
concert in Engle Hall on Thursday even- 
ing, December 14, 1950, at 8:30 P. M., 
under the direction of Professor Ed- 
ward P. Rutledge, with John Sant Am- 
brogio, cellist, as soloist. 

To open the program, the orchestra 
will play Sibelius's famous tone poem, 
Finlandia. From the opera The Bartered 
Bride by Smetana, you will hear Three 
Dances. A picture of rural Bohemia, the 
music is rustic and jolly, making the 
Polka, Furiant, and the Dance of the 
Comedians a delight for the listening 

The final work in this first half of the 
program will introduce John Sant Am- 
brogio, cellist, to the concert audience. 
Mr. Ambrogio, a freshman in the Con- 
servatory, will play the Concerto for 
Violincello by Bocherrini. 

After intermission, the orchestra will 
open the second half of the program 
with Pique Dame, (Queen of Spades) an 
overture written by Von Suppe, compos- 
er of such overtures as the Light Caval- 
ry and Poet and Peasant. Next, we will 
hear the Praeludium by Jarnefelt a short 
composition which is built on Finnish 
folk-dance tunes. One of the noteworthy 
aspects of this work is the basso osten- 
ato, a pattern of notes in the bass which 
does not change time but obstinately re- 
mains the same. 

Considered by many to be among the 
most popular works of Tchaikowsky, his 
ballet suites reflect his originality and 
mastery in both composition and or- 
chestration. Mr. Rutledge has chosen 
The Enchanted Lake as the orchestra's 
next number. Included in this suite are 
Scene, Dance of the Swans, and Hun- 
garian Dance. 

In keeping with the holiday season, a 
Christmas Carol has been included on 
the program. The orchestra will play 
The First Noel as arranged by Morton 

The final selection of the symphony 
orchestra will be the March and Proces- 
sion of Bacchus by Delibes. This work 
is a musical setting of a procession be- 
fore the Temple of Diana, including the 
herald trumpets, the military display, 
flower girls, clowns, and the graceful 
Muses of the Dance. A fine instrument- 
al work, The March and Procession of 
Bacchus proves a fitting finale for the 

Mrs. Baxstresser 
Appears in New York 
Town Hall Concert 

Mrs. Margaret Barthel Baxstresser pia- 
nist, will be presented in concert at 
Town Hall, New York City, on Wednes- 
day afternoon, December 13, 1950 at 
3 P. M., under the auspices of the Wal- 
ter W. Naumberg Musical Foundation, 
City Center of Music and Drama. 

Mrs. Baxstresser was one of the win- 
ners of the 1950 Naumberg Musical 
Foundation Prize last spring. A member 
of the faculty of the Lebanon Valley 
College Conservatory from 1946-1950, 
the pianist made numerous appearances 

W & B Piesents Thornton Wilder's 
Piize Winning Play Our Town 

The Wig and Buckle Club will present on Friday evening, December 8, in 
Engle Hall, Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize winning play, Our Town. This play 
will be the first of two major annual productions presented this year by Lebanon 
Valley College's amateur dramatic group, the Wig and Buckle Club. 

The leading roles in this fall production are portrayed by George DeLong 
and Darlene Moyer. Featured are the following: Robert Kreig, David Jauss, John 
Heck, Ruth Sheaffer, and Janet Weidenhammer. The large supporting cast includes 
Dorothea Cohle, Geraldine Nichols, Katherine Eschenback, Robert Zimmerman, 
Thomas Henry, George Curfman, Allison Stella, John Mohan, Glenn Woods, 
Charles Kagey, Lois Adams, Julia Thatcher. The play is directed by Professor 
Keller and Dr. Sloca. 

Our Town was Thornton Wilder's first notable contribution to the American 
stage. The play opened in New York on February 4, 1938, with Frank Craven 
and Martha Scott in the leading roles and was an instantaneous success. In his 
review of the play on the morning following the play's opening, Brooks Atkinson 
of the New York Times hailed Our Town as a "beautifully evocative play." The 
New York Sun said, "Our Town reaches into the past of America and evokes 
movingly a way of life which is lost in our present turmoil." The New York Morn- 
ing-Telegraph called it "a play of tremendous power. One of the great plays of 
our day." 

The play enjoyed a run in New York of 159 performances, and then was 
successfully toured. It was selected as the Pulitzer Prize play for the season 1937- 
38, and later it was filmed with Frank Craven and Martha Scott again re-creating 
the roles of the Stage Manager and Emily Webb. In the Wig and Buckle product- 
ion on Friday night, these parts will be enacted by George DeLong and Darlene 

The play is unusual in that it requires no scenery and makes use of very few 
properties. This stage simplicity provides a change from the ordinary type of 
theatrical production and is entirely in keeping with the idea of the play itself. 
The absence of scenery makes for freshness which Wilder desired, for in the play 
he examines with simplicity life in America as it is experienced in an average 
small town in New England just after 1900. In essence, Wilder asks his audience 
to stop for a moment and look closely at living — at the trivial and the momentous 
experiences which come to all human beings — and to see life as the fresh and 
wonderful and magnificent experience that it is. 

The committees for the play are as follows: tickets: Lois Adams, chairman; 
Elizabeth Beittel, Glenn Woods, Virginia Wagner; publicity: Betty Bakley, Charles 
Kagey, Ann Blecker; Backstage, lighting; Donald Kreider, Donald Dixon; staging: 
Allisoa Stella; prompting, Jane Lutz and Barbara Metzger. 

Clionians Honor 
Charter Member 

Mrs. Ella Rigler Deaner, a resident 
of Annville for more than ninety years, 
was honored recently by the Clionian 
Literary Society of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege. The Clionian Society, celebrating 
its 77th anniversary, honored Mrs. Dean- 
er as the oldest living member of Clion- 
ian and oldest living alumnus of Leban- 
on Valley College. Miss Sara Anne Etz- 
weiler of Columbia, president of Clion- 
ian, presented Mrs. Deaner with a bou- 
quet of chrysanthemums in behalf of 
the society. 

Mrs. Deaner, lives at 226 W. Main 
Street, Annville, in the house built by 
her father and in which she was born. 
Her husband, the late Professor H. Clay

LVC— Muhlenberg Joint Meetings 
Point up Weakness of Valley System 

Inter-college Session Promotes Goodwill and 
Useful Exchange of Ideas on Student Government 

By Jay Flocken 

Recent developments on the Lebanon Valley campus involving student gov- 
ernment have resulted in several conferences between representatives of Valley 
governing bodies and the Student Council of Muhlenberg College in Allentown. 
Pressed rather heavily with action including all members of the student commun- 
nity, governing leaders were fatally hampered by the incongruous situation exist- 
ing on this campus in which no less than five separate bodies handle matters per- 
taining to student affairs. Consequently, at a meeting arranged by the presidents 
of the Men's Senate and the Men Day Students' Congress, men and women from 
the Jiggerboard, Women's Commuter Council, Senate, and Congress met in a five 
hour long discussion with the Muhlenberg Student Council to see how a central- 
ized governing body operates and to exchange ideas and questions pertaining to 
student government in general. 

Among the many worthwhile items touched upon were several agreed to be 
essential for the existence of real student government. These were: (1) student 
responsibility, (2) centralization of governing powers, (3) cooperation of faculty 
and administration, and (4) real representation on the governing body. 

Students from both schools recognized the necessity to have the average stu- 
dent not only interested in his campus government, but also willing to accept the 
obligations which naturally proceed from any extension of privileges. 

This acceptance, in addition to being an individual character problem, was 
agreed to be dependent on the centralization of all the governing powers granted 
by the school to the students. This makes for efficiency of time, effort, and com- 
parative ease of executing policies. 

And of course, basically, student government to be student government must 
be by the students. This requires a certain amount of cooperation and encourage- 
ment from faculty members and administrative officers, for after all, from them 
come the delegated powers and responsibilities student governments possess. 

Finally, to attain the ends possible by the existence of the other three, there 
must be a representative system which truly voices student opinion on the governing 
body, a system which has the respect of the students. A campus-wide election for 
representatives to a student council offers the most democratic way of achieving 
campus-wide representation of a practical nature. 

The representatives from Lebanon Valley were most favorably impressed 
with the system of student government at Muhlenberg and— more important— 
were equally impressed with the practical application they observed in the regu- 
lar council meeting. 

Muhlenberg opinion was unanimous that our basic problem on this campus 
is the need for centralization— an opinion widely shared by students here. 

Since this inter-college meeting, the four governing bodies mentioned have 
had three joint meetings, attempting to more adequately perform their functions. 
It is to be hoped that this year something tangible may be accomplished in mak- 
ing student government on the Lebanon Valley campus more of an actuality; at 
least taking the first short steps in that direction. Short steps they probably will be, 
for growth of this kind is gradual; we hope it will be noticeable evolution, how- 

The oft lamented pride and spirit of the Valley could benefit from such evo- 
lution; leadership and maturity could greatly be encouraged.

Psych Club Solicits 
New Members 

The Psychology Club is campaigning 
for an increased and more active mem- 
bership. The Club hopes that its activi- 
ties will interest not only the psychology 
majors but other students as well. The

To all students of William Fairlamb: 
My wife and I should like to ex- 
press to all of you our sincere ap- 
preciation for your most wonderful 
gift. It was most generous of you to 
express your best wishes in such a 
completely delightful manner. Since 
it would be almost impossible for us 
to write a note of thanks to each of 
you — which is exactly what we 
should like to do — we are taking this 
means of conveying our most sincere 
thanks and appreciation for your 

Joann and William Fairlamb 

How To Stay in College 

1. Bring the professor newspaper clip- 
pings dealing with his subject. This dem- 
onstrates fiery interest and gives him 
timely items to mention to the class. If 
you can't find any clippings dealing with 
his subject, bring in any clippings at ran- 
dom. He thinks everything deals with 
his subject. 

2. Look alert! Take notes eagerly 
you look at your watch, don't stare at 
it unbelievingly and shake it. 

3. Nod frequently and murmur "How 
true!" To you, this seems exaggerated. 
To him, it's quite objective. 

4. Sit in front, near him. (Applies 
only if you intend to stay awake.) If you 
are going to all the trouble to make a 
good impression, you might as well let 
him know who you are, especially in a 
large class. 

5. Laugh at his jokes. You can tell. 
If he looks up from his notes and smiles 
expectantly, he has told a joke. 

6. Ask for outside reading. You don't 
have to read it. Just ask. 

7. If you must sleep, arrange to be 
called at the end of the class. It creates 
an unfavorable impression if the rest ot 
the class has left and you sit there alone, 

8. Be sure the book you read during 
the lecture looks like a book from the 
course. If you do math in psychology 
and psychology in math class, match 
the books for size and color. 

9. Ask any questions you think he can 
answer. Conversely, avoid announcing 
that you have found the answer to a 
question he couldn't answer, and in your 
younger brother's second grade reader 
at that.

Ramblin' With Woods . . . 

The freshmen still have that "green" look since the midterm marks came our

jor s!" The juniors are remarking, "The army can have me. No more chem for

Xhe Play's the Thing 

Ever hear of Grover's Corners? Well, that's Our Town. You'll meet the Gibbs 
an d the Webbs tonight when Wig and Buckle presents Our Town on the 
Eng le Hall stage at 8:15. "Completely different — top play with top cast— with 
t wo directors how can we go wrong? — has that human touch — with no stage set- 
t j g the audience's attention will be on the play and the characters" — these are the 
remarks and comments of the cast from the leading role down to the prompter. 
George DeLong has the lead and from all indications he will top his roles in John 
loves Mary and The Hasty Heart. The other leads are portrayed by Bob (the fel- 
lo w with the spring-maid shirts) Kreig and Darlene Moyer. Remember them in 
the Homecoming Plays? One of the most beautiful scenes is the wedding of Dar- 
lene and Bob. Bob Zimmerman is everything in this play including the chickens 
a nd the crickets. Professor Keller and Dr. Sloca are directing this production. All 
roads lead to Our Town. Good luck cast! 
There's No Business Like Show Business 

This was proved when the conserv presented LV'S A-Poppin' several weeks 
ag o. This musical was written, directed and presented entirely by the students. 
Some of the highlights included Rhein's "Orange Colored Sky" — Kenny Reiser's 
marimba playing — Ritner and Carpenter's rendition of "Thinking of You" Kline 
and Getz's clowning at the piano — Darlene (This gal's got talent) Moyer's danc- 
ing — Hornberger and his accordian — Don Peiffer at the organ. Why not have 
more musicals like this on the campus? 
Santa Claus is Coming to Town 

Who was seen standing in line to see Santa Claus? None other than Prof. 
McKlveen — Have that date for the Christmas Dance? You still have a few days 
yet — Don't forget to join the fun next week at the annual Christmas carolling 
on campus — Still puzzled about a gift for that best boy friend? See the new zo- 
diac jewelry or the new "symphonies in satin" ties — And for the girl? Diamonds 
seem to be the most popular gift this year — Need any greetings? The Knights of 
the Valley are selling some nice selections. 
Here and There 

See those new Philo jackets? Neatest thing in styling! — Helen MacFarland is 
known these days as "Sparkle Plenty" — Hear that these are "GOLDEN" days for 
Barb Hess — Mark Raessler will trade an album of Shostakovich for Patti Page's 
"Tennessee Waltz" — Hear George Ritner on Horace Heidt's show from Charles- 
ton, S. C? He also appeared on TV. Congrats! — The Metzger-Kline-Redding 
Hostetter merry-go-round has stopped. (I think!) But the Zarker-Bomgardner 
Moore spin is still spinning! Dorie was at the conserv formal with Schiemer ■ — 
Speaking of the formal, Miss Gillespie was the most popular person on the dance 
fl oor — "Does anyone know what Klim is" That was the question Dr. Struble 
asked his class last week. Not a member of the class knew. It is milk spelled back- 
wards — The Palmyra Legion was the scene of a gala affair this week when the 
four societies joined forces for a party. Jane Lutz did a fine job with the games. 
Seems like Dankowski was the top winner (in the jacket dance he was always 
getting a jacket 6 sizes too big for him) Dave Dundore was there with Shirley 
Shaffer — Members of Phi Lambda Sigma have been invited to attend an inter- 
im dance this week-end at Gettysburg College —The frosh lost to the sophs in

Knights and SCA Join 
In Old Clothes Drive 

The Knights of the Valley took up 
the appeal for clothes and text books 
made by the Student Christian Associa- 
tion and decided to carry the drive to 
the limits of Annville. After a short 
conference with President Martin Tros- 
tle of the S. C. A., Reverend Dave 
Gockley, and Principal Starr, of the Ann- 
ville High Sshool, it was decided to ask 
the students to bring in their contribu- 
tions to the high school where they 
were picked up by the Knights. Presi- 
dent Guy Euston wrote a letter to the 
students and parents asking for their co- 
operaion in this drive. Tuesday was the 
official date set for the collection of the 
clothes. The college jeep, loaded to ca- 
pacity, was then turned over to the 
S. C. A. They are storing the articles un- 
til the drive on campus is completed. 

The text books will be sent to a li- 
brary in the Phillipines while the cloth- 
ing will be distributed by the World Stu- 
dent Service Fund among the needy 
throughout the world. 

The Knights wish to thank all those 
who have contributed in every way to 
make this undertaking a success.

Glaubit 6 — Freshmen 

On Saturday the sophomores won the 
inter-class football game. It was a com- 
plete reversal of last year's game when 
the present junior class triumphed. The 
sophs capitalized on the breaks of the 
game which, incidentally, they made 
themselves. This was due greatly to the 
superb effort which the team as a whole 
put forth, although the frosh did show 
keen spirit throughout the game. 

One of the main features was the 
touchdown pass from slinging Bob Mil- 
ler to big Bob Glaubit which covered 
about forty yards. The frosh put up a 
great fight, but the power put their way 
by the sophs was just too much for them. 
However, there was some spectacular 
running by Hendrichs, Brightbill, Sellers 
and company. 

One of the main reasons for the out- 
come of the game was the fact that the 
slugging sophs managed to play better 
ball when the chips were down. This 
was seen clearly when they held the 
frosh on the one yard line for four 
downs just before the half. 

Considering the condition of the field, 
the teams did exceedingly well. There 
were few fumbles, good passing, and 
good running.

Basketballers Open Home Campaign Against Albright 

Kinsella and Zimmerman 
Co-Captain Valley Quintet 

Opening their 1950-51 basketball sea- 
son against Upsala at Orange, N. J. Wed. 
night, the latest variety of Coach Ralph 
Mease's basketeers meet their first home 
opponent in the new Physical Education 
Building Gymnasium on Saturday when 
Lebanon Valley's foremost rival, Al- 
bright, takes the floor against the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen. This game marks the 
forty-ninth basketball contest between 
the two schools in a series that began in 
1902 when the Dutchmen lost to the 
Roaring Lions 18-17. Since then the 
trend towards the fast-break has chang- 
ed Valley basketball and lately the ma- 
jority of the Dutchman court battles 
have ended in astronomical figures. Last 
year the Measemen tallied 1528 points 
in twenty games for a seasonal average 
of 76.4 which turned out to be the fifth 
highest recorded among the small col- 
leges in the nation. The highpoint came 
when the Blue and White cut loose with 
all their fury in a blistering second half 
and all but ran Moravians Greyhounds 
off the floor 102-79. 

This year Lebanon Valley opened with 
the team they ended their past campaign 
with, Upsala. It was that evening last 
March when Henry DiJohnson, Lebanon 
Valley's greatest athlete, and Floyd Beck- 
er, the first LVC dribbler to score over 
1,000 points, ended their brilliant cage 
careers as co-captains at the Valley. Di- 
Johnson was honored with "Di Day" 
while Becker brought his four year to- 
tal to 1,016. With those two fine co- 
captains gone the Dutchmen have select- 
ed two other capable leaders who will 
guide them through their present sched- 
ule, these being Lawrence Michael Kin- 
sella of Linden, N. J., and Charles L. 
Zimmerman of Lebanon. Both seniors, 
they are of the same height, tipping the 
marker at 6' 1" each. Kinsella has been 
a consistently high scorer on Valley bas- 
ketball aggregations, this marking his 
third year of varsity basketball at LVC. 
Last year Larry scored a total of 274 
points for an average of 13.7 per game. 
Noted for his driving-in one hand shots 
Larry plays a hard aggressive game. A 
graduate of Linden High School, Larry 
earned varsity letters there in football, 
basketball, and baseball. He also at- 
tempted the latter sport in college as a 
southpaw pitcher but Larry finds that 
the basket is more appealing than the 
plate. Zimmerman, more appropriately 
known as "Chuck" or "Chuzzie," is one 
of those calm guys who plays the game 
with what one may term quiet charac- 
teristics. Perhaps this may be due to the 
fact that he is the only married man on 
the team. "Chuzzie's" precise play has 
proven an invaluable asset in Dutchmen 
victories in the past and this should be 
the best year this co-captain has had as 
yet. Lebanon Valley can look forward 
to a successful season under these de- 
pendable co-captains. 

Other lettermen returning to the 
squad are Richie Furda, Don "Red" 
Langstaff, Al Murawski, and Bill Tomi- 
len. Furda and Murawski both hail from 
Elizabeth, N. J., where they were grad- 
uated from the same high school, St. 
Patricks. Richie and Al played basket- 
ball and baseball for the Shamrocks and 
proved adept at both, excelling in the 
former as they led their team to the 
New Jersey Class C Catholic Champion- 
ship in their senior year. Richie joined 
the Valley varsity as a freshman and in 
his first year with the Blue and White 
this diminutive eager has dropped 164 
points through the nets. Looking vastly 
improved in recent scrimmages, Furda 
will undoubtedly be one of the main 

cogs in the Valley's wheel of basketball 
success. Murawski enlisted in Mease's 
crew at the start of the second semester 
and established himself as one of the 
finer players on the squad almost im- 
mediately. Standing 6' 3", Murawski is 
excellent in the pivot position and under 
the boards. He has developed a deadly 
one-handed hook shot and time and 
again his sterling play on the court has 
won the applause of the fans. Last year 
Al got off to a slow start scoring only, 
and we use that term loosely, 170 points 
in ten games. This should be a banner 
year for Murawski on the hardwoods 
and his fine play has given an indication 
that there is All-Pennsylvania material 
here on our campus. This has been aug- 
mented by the fact that in one of the 
early scrimmage games this year, Al 
sent thirty points through the cords. 
Really a man to watch! 

Don "Red" Langstaff calls Roselle 
Park, N. J., his home and this will be 
"Red's" third year of varsity play, he 
being a junior. Midway through his 
freshman year "Red" was promoted 
from the Reserves to the senior group 
and has played with the major quintet 
since. Red has a variety of eye-opening 
shots with which he dazzles the fans 
now and then. Noted for his wonderful 
team play and classy faking along with 
good work around the boards, Red is 
looking for a better season than last 
when he was continually hampered by 

Probably possessing more spirit than 
any other player on the floor, junior 
Bill Tomilen has proven helpful in his 
one year on the varsity. This will mark 
Bill's second cage campaign and although 
he didn't participate in a few of the con- 
tests last year we are looking for his in- 
spired team play to be evident on the 
boards this season. Bill attended Sween- 
ey High in Bayonne, N. J., and learned 
his basketball at that institution. 

Up from the Reserve Team of last 
season to bolster the varsity are two of 
its high scorers, Leon Miller andJoe Ox- 
ley. Leon, who calls Palmyra, his home, 
was one of the better junior varsity net- 
men last year and his jump to the var- 
sity in his sophomore semester demon- 
strates how highly the coaching staff re- 
gards his ability. Joe Oxley played two 
years of Reserve ball and like Miller 
moves up to the varsity as a result of 
his excellent basketball know how. Joe 
is from Long Branch, N. J., and was a 
standout athlete there. Aside from foot- 
ball, there is nothing Joe likes better 
than basketball and his hard playing has 
won the respect of the fans. 

Thus far the Valley has held three 
practice scrimmages. They lost the first 
to Mt. St. Mary's but defeated them the 
second time and have also registered a 
practice win over Millersville State 
Teachers College. The squad has been 
working out daily and on Monday held 
their first inter-squad scrimmage in the 
new gym. All this being in preparation 
for last night's opener and Saturday's 
more important game against Albright. 

This, then, has been a brief preview of 
the Valley Varsity for 50-51. Look for 
individual write-ups and pictures on our 
stars of the hoop and hardwood in the 
ensuing copies of LA VIE. 

The Sports Department of LA VIE 
joins wih the rest of the college in 
congratulating fullback Walt Shonos- 
ky and guard Tom Quinn on their 
receiving honorable mention in the 
1950 Associated Press' All-Pennsyl- 
vania football selections.
